Human Rights Monitoring has some exciting news for our readers! We will be starting two new series!

New SERIES #1  Human Rights Around Town! (Touring Historical Human Rights Sites in Korea)

HRM will be developing a tour series where our reporters visit and introduce on HRM various historical human rights sites within Korea. Through these visits of historical sites we hope that it will be a more interesting way of drawing the human rights history and situation of Korea. Our reporters will be visiting various sites and writing about them, giving our readers a bit of background and opinions on their thoughts on the visit.

If you have any suggestions on places please let us know. Our future plans is to develop this series into an actual tour to take our readers!

New SERIES #2 Inside Look into Community Organizations

There are so many Civil Society Organizations from broad spectrum’s on human rights in South Korea. HRM reporters will visit these organizations and write pieces introducing them. Through this series we plan to take a deeper look at the various organizations introducing its background, history, and the specific programs and issues they work on. We hope that this will paint a broader picture of the various human rights trends in South Korea and gives readers an inside to how civil society in Korea operates.
