The Korea Now Podcast

Dec 6, 2018

This episode of the Korea Now podcast features an interview that Jed Lea-Henry conducted with Paul Kyumin Lee. They speak about the issues faced by people with family members inside North Korea, the time-sensitive need to secure a formal mechanism for family reunions between America and North Korea, the political and security landscape that such an agreement is being stifled by, the challenges and issues being faced by the North Korean defector community, and primarily the work that is being undertaken by ‘Divided Families USA’ in seeking a solution to these challenges.

Paul Kyumin Lee is a graduate of Yale University, and is currently a junior fellow in the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in Washington, DC. Paul also holds the position of Vice-President of the non-governmental, non-profit organization, Divided Families USA. This organisation advocates for a formal mechanism of reunion for Americans of Korean descent and their direct relatives in North Korea who were separated during the Korean War.
