North Korean Refugee Report

Embracing The Future

In publishing this book, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation wants to increase awareness for the current situation of the North Korean refugees.


Their successful integration serves as an important step towards peaceful unification. As the number of North Korean refugees in South Korea is steadily increasing, necessary measures have to be taken.

In the first part of the publication, North Korean refugees describe their lives in North Korea, the process and reason of defection and their challenges in adapting to the South Korean society as well as their expectations for the future. In the second part of the publication, experts analyze governmental and nongovernmental integration initiatives for North Korean refugees in South Korea. While doing this, the authors share their personal as well as professional experience in participating in this integration process and paint a vision for mutual understanding and future unification.
