Short Term Exchange - Seoul National University (Winter)

The International Winter Course ‘Human Rights and Asia’ is designed to allow participants to think about the universality of human rights in particular contexts of Asia and to gain a deepened understanding about human rights issues in this region. This two-week intensive course, taught by experts who have extensive experience of working in the fields of human rights, was launched in 2014 and now is waiting for its fourth year’s participants. It offers both general sessions on international human rights norms and human rights protection mechanisms, and thematic sessions on contemporary issues and case studies in Asia.

The 4th International Winer Course ‘Human Rights and Asia 2017’ will provide a unique opportunity to discuss human rights and various contemporary themes such as freedom of expression and democracy, gender/sexuality, enforced disappearance, socio-economic rights, sustainable development, refugees and migrants, and business in the context of Asia. Participants will be involved in a multidimensional learning that includes not only lectures, but also presentations, discussions and visits to human rights organizations in Korea. Our course ultimately aims at fostering an interdisciplinary study and multidimensional advocacy of human rights in Asia.
