North Korean Famine

North Korea’s starvation politics reinforce state power and enable regime survival. Simply stated, those who are favorable before the state are more likely to receive food, to receive life. As the state controls food production, management, distribution, and aid receipt, Kim Jong Il’s regime essentially determines who will live and who will die.

From 1994 to 1998, independent analysis estimates between 2-3 million people died due to starvation, disease, or sickness caused by lack of food.
