For a long-term policy that pursues a transformed relationship between the North Korean regime and its people to be successful, the United States will need to provide credible assurances of support for North Koreans who want to move towards a freer, more accountable political system.26 Te United States and our allies should collaboratively decide if there is political will to support a peaceful transformation inside North Korea. If this is the case, the United States should coordinate multilateral support for this policy with allies, including South Korea, Japan, the European Union, Canada, and Australia.
With the Biden administration pursuing a more robust values-based and multilateral approach to foreign policy, the timing is right for the United States to take back leadership on this issue. Te United States should consider adding North Korean human rights back onto the agenda of the UN Security Council by reviving a coalition of like-minded states. Tis recommendation is in line with Secretary Blinken’s February 2021 press statement declaring that the United States intends to seek election for a seat on the UN Human Rights Council starting in January 2022.27 Furthermore, the USG should suggest the creation of post-UN Commission of Inquiry investigative mechanisms on North Korean human rights.
