CanKor Blogs

CanKor currently hosts two blogs:


UnCommon Sense examines the current situation in North Korea from the perspective of nations that have been on the sidelines of the Six-Party Talks: middle powers like Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the EU states, and Asian nations who are not immediate neighbours of Korea. We aim to provide information and analysis that does not get the attention it deserves in the commercial media. The CanKor Blog includes contributions from specialists with long experience working on and in North Korea. We also highlight nongovernmental efforts to reduce tension and help to resolve the 60-year old conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

The Human Factor

Human rights continue to be among the most contentious issues when the Western world deals with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). A debate about the place of human rights in relation to nuclear weapons negotiations and development assistance has already been sparked on the youthful CanKor Blog. This is likely to intensify with the fact that the 10th annual International Conference on North Korean Human Rights is being held in our very own backyard, in Toronto, Canada at in late August. CanKor is therefore opening this new blog dedicated to the issue of human rights in the DPRK. This is the space for compelling dialogue, analysis and information. Subscribe, visit often and participate. We would love to hear from you.

You will find archives posts organized by topic in the Filing Cabinet. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us.
