There is a lack of empirical interview data on escapees from North Korea and the aim of this thesis is to address this omission. At a theoretical level, this thesis is concerned with North Korean escapees' cross-border mobility to South Korea through a third country. It explores how North Koreans' migration, often popularly described as the `Underground Railroad', is undertaken through smuggling networks, documenting both the process of smuggling and the structure of its networks.
