NKDB has carried out this annual survey since 2014 to measure the level of interest and awareness of North Korean human rights among the South Korean public. The survey is carried out with 1,000 South Koreans who are aged 19 and over.
The questions added to the 2022 survey include why they became interested in North Korean human rights, why they are not interested in North Korean human rights, whether they are aware of the incident of the repatriation of North Korean escapees in 2019, and the appointment of the new Ambassador on North Korean human rights.
NKDB shared the results of the survey as well as its new endeavours to raise awareness on North Korean human rights through digital platforms including the Visual Atlas and Larchiveum of North Korean Human Rights.
Thanks to our panellists from Liberty in North Korea, UN OHCHR and SBS for joining us in the conversation in how we can overcome the obstacles to awareness-raising on North Korean human rights in South Korea.
The findings of the survey can be found on our website.
