The Battle for Human Rights in North Korea: Is There Hope for Peaceful Change? 

For over half a century North Korea has been an isolated and oppressive nation, ruled by the dictatorial Kim regime. Oscillating between economic sanctions and policies of détente, U.S. and U.N. foreign policy has failed to affect lasting change, leading to a sense of hopelessness and resignation within the international community. Yet, there is still hope for peaceful change in North Korea. What changes have occured in recent years which should give us hope for social and political transformation? What sets North Korea apart regarding human rights violations? What can and should we be doing about it?

On Friday April 6, 2018, guest speaker and North Korean expert, Dr. Suzanne Scholte, joined the Denver Seminary community to talk about the state North Korea and what the church can do about it. You can watch her address below.
