Human Rights and the Work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Republic of Korea

A special guest lecture by Dr. Kim Dong Choon


Tuesday, January 21

Time: 4-5:30 PM
Location: Ahn House

Dr. Kim Dong Choon, Social Science faculty at Sungkonghoe University in Korea, served on the TRCK (Truth and Reconciliation Commission) for four years as a standing commissioner and published a memoir (이것은 기억과의 전쟁이다).  Dr. Kim will present the achievements and limitations of the TRCK in terms of the advancement of human rights in Korea.  Though the TRCK would be the first case of a comprehensive past-dealing governmental organization in Northeast Asia, it closed its doors with leaving a few goals unfinished because of limited mandates and unfavorable political circumstances.  Please join us to learn more about the TRCK. 

Please RSVP here.
