George W. Bush Institute & InterMedia: Education & Employment Among U.S.-Based North Koreans


Between March and May of 2016, InterMedia, under funding from the George W. Bush Institute, conducted 20 in-depth interviews with North Koreans living in the United States. The research was commissioned to gain a better understanding of the educational and employment challenges North Korean refugees face, and what opportunities are available to help them overcome these challenges.  The interviewees represent a diverse cross section of North Koreans in the United States. While most were refugees who were directly resettled in the United States after fleeing North Korea, three interviewees had resettled in the United States only after first defecting to South Korea, and, therefore, have South Korean citizenship.
