Published by woodstockwoody
This report calls the world’s attention to the suffering of North Korean women who have become the victims of trafficking and forced marriages when escaping their country for a new life in China. Not only are the political and economic rights of these women neglected by their own government, but also by the government of their country of asylum. Too often the failure of both North Korea and China to protect them has been overlooked by the international community.

Acknowledgments
Tis report was supported by contributions rom members o the Board o the Committee orHuman Rights in North Korea who realized that the highly visible reugee crisis in China dur-ing the 1990s hid a more obscure phenomenon—the tracking o North Korean women. Withunding rom Tai Lee, Lisa Colacurcio, and Steve Kahng, the Committee was able to hire adedicated human rights activist, Hae-young Lee, to contact women who appeared to have been victims o tracking and interview them in China near their homes. Te accounts that she re-corded and her ndings rom these interviews are presented in two chapters o this report. Te policy analysis, legal argument, conclusions and recommendations, are exclusively the views o the Committee or Human Rights in North Korea which is grateul to Hae-young Lee, her col-league Dae-gyo Seo, and the women who were courageous enough to talk with them, or the lightthey have shed on this very dark corner o human suering. Responsibility or the overall reportand its recommendations lies with the Committee alone.A number o Board members have contributed long hours to guiding the research and writing o this report. Board members providing such valuable comments included Richard V. Allen,Roberta Cohen, Lisa Colacurcio, John Despres, Helen-Louise Hunter, Debra Liang-Fenton,Marcus Noland, and Suzanne Scholte. Te advice and counsel o an internationally-recognizedexpert on displaced peoples, Roberta Cohen, was especially critical. Te research was originallyconceived and managed by Debra Liang Fenton, then executive director o HRNK, through itscompletion in May 2007. Te legal analysis and a good portion o the editing o the entire re- port is the ne work o HRNK’s legal researcher, Heesug Chung. Amanda Wood o the NationalEndowment or Democracy and interns at HRNK, including Christopher Kim, Min-soo Kim,and Narae Yim in the past year, and others in earlier years, generously gave their time to this eort. We are especially grateul or the comments o a number o editors and reviewers, including Sarah Jackson-Han, Stephan Haggard, and Maura Kennedy.Te Board especially commends and expresses its gratitude to our colleague and Executive Director,Chuck Downs, or his unstinting eort and special skill in bringing this report to print.On behal o the Board,Richard V. Allen Stephen J. SolarzCo-Chairman Co-Chairman
