Giving defectors the chance to be heard
PSCORE can arrange for researchers and organisations to contact North Korean defectors. To improve the human rights situation in North Korea more research and advocacy is necessary. The defector community often wants to contribute to this goal.
Yet, North Korean defectors are simply too few to be able to handle the demand for interviews. This places a heavy burden upon them, which is why it is necessary to compensate them for their time and effort.
Unfortunately, upon arriving in Seoul, North Korean defectors often face financial hardships. Therefore, compensation fees alleviate inconveniences for them, such as, needing to take time away from work, or facing additional travel outside of work hours.
- Interview around ₩50,000 / hour excl. organizing or translation fees
- Survey (<4 pages) around ₩30,000 excl. organizing or translation fees
