So emigration is virtually non-existant
Why is South Korea not on the map? I’m sure North Koreans have fled to the South over the past 16 years. Is it nulled by their passage through a third party country, like China?
By map I mean table, naturally.
I have not been able to find the reprot from which this table was taken. I assume the point of the table, however, is to show the countries besides South Korea that are accepting North Korean defectors.
I don’t think that South Korea would treat North Korean defectors as refugees in the legal sense. The South Korean constitution defines the national territory as “the Korean Peninsula and its adjacent islands”, so it would logically follow that defectors have the right to citizenship. If they are citizens and not foreigners, issues of refugee status and political asylum are irrelevant.
Any ideas why so many more refugees go to the UK than to the USA?
Gag Halfrunt is right. North Korean defectors are to be treated just like South Korean citizens. They are given social seurity numbers and rigth to vote also. So, they are to be treated just like average Korean.
But reality is not so quite similar this picture.
They are having a hard time in South Korea.
why many refugees are going to the UK than the US is..
I personally think that the UK is intereted in North Korean refugee status.
I don’t mean that the US is not interested in that since the US is the best friend to South Korea.
