Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea


A/HRC/34/66

Agenda item 4

Human rights situations that require the Council’s attention

Report of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Note by the Secretariat

The present report, submitted to the Human Rights Council pursuant to Council resolution 28/22, is the first to be submitted by the current mandate holder since his appointment in August 2016. 

During the reporting period, two nuclear tests and repeated missile launches by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea deepened its international isolation. At the same time, the country took some positive steps to engage with some United Nations human rights mechanisms.

The Special Rapporteur continues to build on the two-track approach advocated by his predecessor. The approach combines the demand to allocate responsibility for human rights violations with the need to pursue dialogue with the authorities and other actors to improve the human rights situation in the country. The Special Rapporteur appreciates measures taken by different actors to protect human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
