Study on the situation of human rights in South and North Korea

About the Project

The research study on the situation of human rights in South and North Korea is based on desk research as well as on an assessment visit to the Republic of Korea. It is divided into two parts, each dedicated to one country. Regarding the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the aim is to identify the implications of the UN Commission of Inquiry’s report of 2014. Regarding South Korea, the primary objective is to analyse the extent to which the State (i.e. state actors, institutions and legal framework) protects, interferes with or restricts fundamental rights.
