The Committee’s reports have addressed many of the fundamental human rightsissues in North Korea. Its 2003 report, “The Hidden Gulag: Exposing North Korea’s Prison Camps”(by David Hawk), was the first comprehensive study of the camps. Other reports published by theCommittee have included: ã “Hunger and Human Rights: The Politics of Famine in North Korea” (by Stephan Haggard and Marcus Noland, 2005) ã “The North Korean Refugee Crisis: Human Rights and International Response” (by Stephan Haggard and Marcus Noland, 2006) ã “Failure to Protect: A Call for the UN Security Council to Act in North Korea” (published withDLA Piper LLP, 2006)ã “Legal Strategies for Protecting Human Rights in North Korea” (published with Skadden, Arps,Slate, Meagher & Florn LLP, 2007)ã “Failure to Protect: The Ongoing Challenge of North Korea (published with DLA Piper LLP, 2008)ã “Lives for Sale: Personal Accounts of Women Fleeing North Korea to China” (by Lee Hae- young, 2009) ã “After Kim Jong-il: Can We Hope for Better Human Rights Protection?” (by Kim Kwang-jin, 2009)ã “Taken! North Korea’s Criminal Abduction of Citizens of Other Countries” (by Yoshi Yama -moto, 2011) ã “North Korea after Kim Jong-il: Can We Hope for Better Human Rights Protection?” (by KimKwang-jin, 2011) The Committee is currently finalizing reports on: “Chulshin Songbun,” North Korea’s social clas-sification system, which is at the root of human rights violations in North Korea; the structure andoperation of North Korea’s public security agencies, which shows the system of political repressionemployed by North Korea; and the restrictions on information circulation inside North Korea.
