In this episode we will speak with Olivia Enos from the Heritage Foundation about different North Korea human rights issues—including North Koreans being trafficked through China, religious persecution, and other violations. We’ll also talk about the implications of North and South Korea reuniting, and what the United States can do to prepare for this possibility.
Previously, Enos has written in Providence about Syrian refugees in Lebanon, and how Lebanese Christians have helped them there.
