Symposium on North Korean human rights

The Peace Foundation, a private South Korean organization dedicated to peace issues will hold an international symposium on North Korean human rights conditions next week in Seoul.

About 300 human rights experts and activists from South Korea and abroad will discuss alternative ways to improve human rights conditions in North Korea. They will compare different approaches proposed by South Korean conservative and progressive groups, the South Korean government and the international community.

The symposium aims to establish a "mutually beneficial relationship" among the parties concerned, the Peace Foundation said in a statement.
