CGA’s Professor Colette Mazzucelli was cited by Italy’s AGI news agency in an online article published by AGI CHINA 24 about the Report written by the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). Mazzucelli comments on DPRK nationals who cross the border illegally into China. Her argument, translated by Italian journalist Sonia Montrella, is that the attention of transnational advocacy networks (TANs) must be focused on the plight of DPRK nationals fleeing in fear of internment or starvation. Mazzucelli advocates their status as refugees who have a right to international protection.
