What We Do

Korea Future Initiative is a London-based not-for-profit working to achieve accountability, dignity, and justice for exiled North Koreans. We work to those ends through the investigation and documentation of human rights abuses, provision of detailed and customised technical advice to exiles and stakeholders pursuing accountability through transitional and conventional justice mechanisms, and programmes that offer moral and legal justice for the North Korean people.


We investigate and document violations of human rights in the context of exile experiences and opinion.This work informs the development of programmes which offer moral restitution to North Korean refugees.

Capacity Building

We provide in-depth training to exiles and stakeholders on human rights and conventional and transitional justice mechanisms.

Justice and Memory

Our work aids North Korean survivors of human rights violations by helping preserve their individual and collective memories of crimes through online memorials, global exhibitions, and commemorative activities.
