“Reframing North Korean Human Rights” – a thematic issue of Critical Asian Studies (45-4:2013 and 46-1:2014) in two installments was co-edited by Christine Hong, Korea Policy Institute (KPI) board member, along with Hazel Smith, KPI Adviser.
The complete “Reframing North Korean Human Rights” collection was freely downloadable as a single PDF until the end of August 2014 for Korea Policy Institute readers from Critical Asian Studies. KPI is very grateful to the journal for making this issue available to our readers. Now, portions remain freely available.
Drawing upon the research and involvement of many members of the KPI community, this thematic issue of Critical Asian Studies was developed from a series of KPI initiatives that aimed, from the “axis of evil” era onward, to offer a critical account of the contemporary politicized landscape of North Korean human rights.
