The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) faces a major social issues due to the development of  colossal military forces. The civilians have to face famine, inhumane treatment, executions, forced labour camps, refugees, freedom of AIM (Association, Information, and Movement), and KIA (Key International Actors). Although the government have signed four key international human rights (CCPR, CESCR, CAT, and CRC) and included rights protection, they forbidden political objection, media freedom, and religious freedom. North Korea punishes or executes hundreds of thousands of citizens for anti-social crime acts even children as well. The development for media usage and housings are out-of-date since the government bitcoin is used for military system. The comparison of electronics media used between North Korea and South Korea represents that North Korea have less opportunity of media usage  and lack of technology development. Three million phone usage might look a lot-but in a country of 25 million people, it amounts to just over one over every ten people. Most  mobile usage concentrates on the capital city of North Korea, Pyongyang. By contrast, with a population of some 51 million people, there are more mobile phone subscription than people in South Korea.North Korea  faces a major problem with the transportation system. The government have not developed the road pavement for transportation. As a result, the local transportation system is far behind than any countries. On the other hand, South Korea’s road system is almost errorless. This chart represents the road development   between NK and SK. North Korea has some 25,554 km of roads, according to 2006 figures, but about 3% actually paved, which measures 724 km (449 miles). It is estimated that only 11 out of every 1,000 North korean people owns a car which means, numerous people travel with bus transportation.The average life expectancy between North Korea and South Korea represents that NK have less chance to live due to the social issues. A series of famine in the late 1990’s caused a sharp drop in life expectancy in North Korea, but even without that factor, the North lags nearly 12 years behind.  This means that the North citizens currently face agonizing social issues which are famine, inhumane treatment, executions, forced labour camps, refugees, freedom of AIM, and KIA. Food shortages are one of many major reasons why North Korea have less life expectancy than South Korea’s.Even though the North Korean have less chance to live due to the harsh factors, they produce more babies compared to South Korean. However, the babies have less chance to live until adulthood. Despite the CRC rule, North Korea have strict rule of executions, forced labour camps, and refugees. In 2017, South Korea’s birth rate hit a record low as the country continued a decade-long struggle to boost the country’s birth rate. It has spent about $70bn (£53bn) handing out baby bonuses, improving paternity leave and paying for infertility treatment.Due to the social issues in North Korea, the death rate increased during 1993 until today. The North Korea death rate was the same as South Korea’s in the late 1950’s until 1990 but due to various social issues in NK, the death rate has increased back again to the 10’s. This has the mortality impact on population growth. Therefore, NK have to face a series of death rate due to the social issues. In March 2011, UN survey estimated that over six million vulnerable persons in North Korea urgently required international food assistance to avoid famine. As the food shortages reached more than one million metric tons, the World Food Programme (WFP) called it the worst famine in a decade, and South Korea-based NGOs and informants inside North Korea reported hunger-related deaths to the government. The death rate of NK has increased in a massive rate. The causes were mostly dictation factors of governments and some environmental factors. For doing some anti-social crime, North Korea put citizens in a fear of torture and executions. Common forms of torture include sleep deprivation, beatings with iron rods or sticks, kicking and slapping, and enforced sitting or standing for hours. All these punishments can cause serious injuries or even death. Detainees are subject to so-called pigeon torture, which they are forced to cross their arms behind their back, are handcuffed, hung in the air tied to a pole, and beaten with a club. Guards also have opportunity to undertake sexual assaults to the prisoner women. North Korea’s Criminal Code reported that the death penalty is applied to small set of crime but these include uncertain offenses. NK also applies collective punishments, sending to forced labour camps not only the criminal but his or her parents, spouses, children, and even grandchildren. These camps are scandalous for dreadful living conditions and abuse including food shortages, no medical care, lack of housings and clothes, and tortures by guards or execution. Forced labour works include mining, agriculture, and logging, all done with poor equipment and harsh, dangerous environment. The death rate in these camps and NK are high. The government committed that these camps never exist but US and many UN countries confirms that countless citizens were sent to the camps. Those who escapes, mostly by crossing the border of China or South Korea – faces hard punishments and torture or the government send them to the labour camps. Hundreds of thousands of North Koreans have fled since the 1990s, and some have settled in China’s Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture (YKAP). Beijing precisely labels North Koreans in China, “illegal” migrants and repatriates them, despite its duty to offer protection to the refugees. Due to the result, the population rate has been decreasing since the 20th century. The North Korean government uses fear factors-with threats of labour works, executions, and torture-to prevent the citizens from contact with freedom of information, association, and travel. NK has a vast network of informations applied to each states. All media and networks are controlled by the state and they operates to visualize each citizens’ political backgrounds to watch their loyalty toward the dictation government.The North Korean government still refuses the human rights politics rules of UN. In March, the UN General Assembly adopted a decision against North Korea for the sixth straight year, serious violations of civil, political, economic, social, and cultural rights, and concerns about severe restrictions on the freedoms of thought, conscience, religion, opinion and expression, peaceful assembly and association. In the same month, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) adopted a verdict against North Korea for the fourth year in a row for immeasurable, organized human rights violations. Both resolutions doomed North Korea’s failure to declare whether it accepted any of the international human rights recommendation.Diplomatic relations between Canada and North Korea were established in 2001. Canada is concerned by North Korea’s nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, and has urged North Korea to cease all related activities such as Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. In 2010, Canada applied restrictions on the relationship due to North Korea’s aggressive actions; (1) regional security concerns; (2) the human rights and humanitarian situation in North Korea; (3) international Korean relations and (4) diplomatic issues. Canada also remains concerned about the North Korea’s inhumane human rights violations, and has taken action for an improvement in the protection of human rights in North Korea. North Korea has suffered food shortages and famine during the past two decades. Since 2005, Canada has provided over $33 million to support the food bank in North Korea.In 2010, few NGOs have taken actions toward North Korea, most from Europe aid agencies. Other active but non-resident NGOs include the Mennonite Central Committee (Canada), First Steps (Canada), the Eugene Bell Foundation (United States/South Korea), Christian Friends of Korea (United States), the Canadian Food Grains Bank, and the Hanns Seidel and the Friedrich Naumann Foundations (Germany). In January 2010, South Korea donated 10,000 tons of food through the South Korean Red Cross II. In March 2010, South Korea sent 20 tons of milk powder. In September, 2010, U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) made $600,000 available to fund flood assistance, Global Resource Services and Mercy Corps.The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) has a severe social issues and the country’s economy is down at the bottom of the chart. Other developed countries need to give hands to North Korean citizens to give more opportunities and help of freedom from dictation democracy.
