Bob Huish is Associate Professor in International Development Studies at Dalhousie University. Dr. Huish’s research includes several areas of Health Geography and International Development Studies related to health, social justice, and human rights. Author of two books, and numerous articles, his current research looks at human rights abuses and the refugee crisis within North Korea. Dr. Huish’s latest article in the Journal, "Asia Policy” exposes a shadowy network of shell companies and offshore capital that allows North Korea to circumvent international sanctions, and to perpetuate its human rights abuses.
