North Korea’s ‘lost generation’: Weapons-obsessed regime 'indifferent' to its children's suffering

The most comprehensive study to date on health in North Korea has accused the regime in Pyongyang of being indifferent to the fate its children in its haste to develop nuclear missiles and other weapons. The result of nearly 30 years of research, the report details the fine line that children in the North walk between life and death, as well as the human rights violations they face due to the state’s prioritisation policies. The report, “Lost Generation: The Health and Human Rights of North Korean Children 1990-2018”, was released in Washington on Friday and focuses on those who survived - albeit traumatised - what is euphemistically known in the North as the “Arduous March”.
