“Kaesong industrial zone will not change much in North Korea”

Despite fractional openings in North Korea, such as the reopening of the Kaesong industrial zone on Monday, there is little chance of any improvement in the “catastrophic human rights situation” under the head of state, Kim Jong-un, according to scholarly valuation. “Unnoticed by the regime, information from abroad contradicting the state propaganda is in fact presently leaking into the country via mobile phones, radios and DVDs, and the joint North and South Korean industrial park at Kaesong will also mean more outside contact. But this will not improve the human rights situation ”, explains the Bonn-based Koreanist Dr. Sang-Yi O-Rauch, who will present research results on the situation in North Korea at the 32nd German Oriental Studies Conference.
