The new phase of Kim leadership in North Korea has, according to Maple Croftâ€™s Human Rights Atlas, coincided with a tightening of state control and a worsening of its human rights levels. The Atlas has marked a steady decline during the transition period from Kim Jong Il to Kim Jong Un (from 1.5 in 2010 to 0.8 in 2013), as the government sought to consolidate power and quell unrest. North Korea does not allow any kind of organised opposition, religious freedom, civil society or free media. Arbitrary attest and detention, extrajudicial murder, disappearances, torture, internal displacement, trafficking of people and a lack of any freedom of thought and expression remain serious and pervasive problems. Collective punishment is still used and hundreds of thousands of people
are enslaved in forced labour camps and re-education centers. Individuals convicted of crimes are often condemned to serve their sentences with their spouse, children, parents and even grandchildren. The state still publically executes prisoners who steal state property and commit other â€˜anti-governmentâ€™, â€˜anti-Kimâ€™ and â€˜anti-socialistâ€™ crimes.
