Human Insecurity and the Duty to Protect

(p.113) 7 Human Insecurity and the Duty to Protect
North Korea and the World

Walter C. Clemens

University Press of Kentucky

Chapter Seven focuses on the relationship between national insecurity and human insecurity in North Korea. Clemens mentions that while some citizens regard their supreme leaders as demigods, most are long-suffering, sensitive individuals oppressed by harsh economic conditions, and stern discipline and intimidation. Throughout the chapter Clemens discusses North Korea’s economic repression, hunger and health related issues, and gross violations of human rights. Clemens reveals stories of violations and examples of the stern rules imposed upon North Korean citizens. Clemens ends the chapter by examining the findings of the US Human Rights Commission inquiry and the continued debates between the DPKR and the UN on the state of North Korea’s human rights.
