Photo: Tae-Ung BaikTAE-UNG BAIK attempts to gauge the seriousness of human rights violations in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea by examining the country's criminal process. The criminal justice system and the actual criminal process in North Korea are not completely known to the world, and it is important to analyze the actual processes of the system in order to come to an accurate understanding of the human rights violations in the society. By comparing the written laws and the actual practices, he provides an explanation of North Korean criminal procedure and human rights practice.

Tae-Ung Baik is an associate professor in the William S. Richardson School of Law. He was formerly director of the Korean Legal Studies Program at the University of British Columbia. He is a graduate of the Seoul National University College of Law and earned master's and doctoral degrees at the Notre Dame Law School. He teaches international criminal law, human rights, and Korean law. He is a member of the bar of the state of New York, worked for Human Rights Watch in New York, and served as a legal adviser in the South Korean delegation to the 56th United Nations Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights. His book, Emerging Regional Human Rights Systems in Asia, is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.
