Abstract

According to a UNHCR statistic report as of 2010, 581 North Korean refugees reside in the United Kingdom.[1] Great Britain has accepted more North Korean defectors than other country.[2] Since 2004, the UK government has provided homes, financial supports, and other social benefits for refugees from North Korea. However, it is noteworthy that the increasing trend of NK refugee has stagnated since 2008 – only scores of applications were accepted between 2008 and 2010.
