The Master of Human Rights Student Association is hosting a virtual panel event with three North Korean refugees living in Seoul, South Korea. In the interest of furthering our understanding of the diverse experiences of human rights violations, the refugees will share a brief prepared story about their life in North Korea and how they were able to leave. The refugees will also answer questions from the audience.
Dr. Sandra Fahy, Associate Professor at Sophia University and former Harvard Law Fellow will be the chair of the virtual event. Dr. Fahy will also give a keynote presentation on the topic of possibilities for reconciliation of the Korean Peninsula. Dr. Jeongmin Kim from the University of Manitoba’s Department of History will provide a historical account of relations between North and South Korea.
