How China and Russia Facilitate North Korea’s Human Rights Abuses

Overheard at the Bush Center Podcast

The George W. Bush Institute, in collaboration with Liberty in North Korea, recently hosted 14 North Korean refugees and recipients of the Lindsay Lloyd North Korea Freedom Scholarship for a workshop to further develop their leadership and advocacy skills. At the workshop, the Bush Institute’s Executive Director David J. Kramer, Senior Fellow Victor Cha, and the Bradford M. Freeman Managing Director of Global Policy Igor Khrestin joined moderator and Director of Freedom and Democracy Chris Walsh for a discussion on how China and Russia facilitate North Korea’s human rights abuses.

The conversation is based on a report released by the Bush Institute and CSIS that explores how Beijing and Moscow support and enable North Korea’s crimes against humanity.
