About Us

Korea Future is the only independent, non-profit organisation committed to achieving justice and accountability for human rights violations and crimes against humanity within the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea's penal system. Established in 2017 at the direct request of North Korean survivors, we work with affected individuals and local and global partners, using thorough investigations and legal and advocacy strategies to dismantle impunity while building the capacities of grassroots and survivor-led organisations to achieve effective outcomes. Korea Future operates out of offices in The Hague, Seoul, and London with a dedicated and diverse team comprising legal analysts, investigators, and organisational staff, all supported by our Board of Trustees.
