Every week South Korean Human Rights Monitor publishes a digest of articles and reports on important human rights issues related to Korea from domestic and international media, rights organizations and government agencies. Through this publication we hope to share other perspectives on issues that HRM covers and also to share information about issues that HRM may not have been able to cover.
