May 20, 2019 - Report on Sex Slaves: The Prostitution, Cybersex & Forced Marriage of North Korean Women & Girls in China
In March 2018, the Korea Future Initiative documented widespread gender-based sexual violence in North Korea. Maintaining its focus on under-investigated and under-reported issues, this report moves to China and the tens of thousands of North Korean women and girls trafficked and sold into the sex trade.
The report uncovers and documents: First, a set of factors that leave North Korean women and girls uniquely vulnerable to sex trafficking and the sex trade. Second, a demand for sex slaves in China that is fuelling the exploitation and abuse of North Korean women and girls. Third, a set of pathways that push victims into organised prostitution, cybersex, and forced marriages. Fourth, a complex and inter-connected network of criminality that accrues an estimated $105,000,000 United States Dollars annually from the sale of female North Korean bodies.
