Transitional Justice Working Group publishes mapping report of crimes against humanity in North Korea

The Transitional Justice Working Group recently published it’s first Mapping Crimes Against Humanity in North Korea report. The report notes that “TJWG sees the Mapping Project as having the potential to contribute selected data to this repository as part of the collective effort to support the push for accountability, as well as for future efforts to institute a process of transitional justice following a change in the political conditions in North Korea”.

TJWG also asserts that “[l]ocation-based mapping of this kind contributes to a larger process of ‘mapping’ the full nature and scale of systematic human rights abuses in North Korea”.
