Korea Economic Institute of America Presents:

Human Security in North Korea Forum: Humanitarian Assistance

Read Event Description

Event Date

March 24th 12:00pm - 12:00am EST

Event Description

This program aims to call attention to the humanitarian needs of North Koreans, and also to draw on the experience of humanitarian intervention practitioners to define some of the possible implications for larger-scale humanitarian programs in North Korea.

This is the first in a series of three programs inaugurating KEI’s new Human Security in North Korea Forum, designed to improve understanding of the steps required to identify and respond to the needs of North Koreans. The UNDP’s 1994 Human Development Report identified seven threat areas to human security: economic, food, health, environmental, personal, community, and political security. KEI’s new forum will address those issues at the top of the human security agenda for North Korea. Programs will be held periodically, and each will fall under one of our three main topic areas: humanitarian assistance, development assistance, and human rights.
