Workshop on Human Rights Education
UK Ambassador to Seoul Warwick Morris

The British Embassy in Seoul, the National Human Rights Commission, and the Ministry of Education will be hosting an international human rights education workshop in South Korea on 22 (Seoul), 23 (Busan) and 26 (Kwangju) of February 2007.

The workshop on "Developing a Human Rights Friendly School Culture" will bring together UK experts with some 600 people who are directly involved in developing human rights education in Korean schools including principals and teachers.

The three-day event is designed to present key human rights issues in Korean middle and high schools and to make a positive impact on Korea's human rights education.

The UK experts attending are Prof. Audrey Osler, Director of Leeds University's Centre for Citizenship and Human Rights Education and Dr. Hugh Starkey, Reader at the University of London Institute of Education. Prof. Osler and Dr. Starkey are leading researchers in the field of human rights education and have given numerous human rights workshops, training and consultancy around the world. In Seoul, they will share their knowledge and experience of human rights education in the UK and will also take the opportunity to learn about recent related developments in Korea.

"This workshop provides [the participants] with an opportunity to exchange British and Korean experiences, discuss related achievements and challenges and identify good practices," remarked Dr. Kang Kyung-hwa, the United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights, on the occasion of the first human rights education workshop to be held in Korea. She continued, "I would like to encourage you to continue and strengthen your human rights education work, which constitutes an important investment towards fostering just societies in which all human rights of all persons are valued and respected."

For enquiries, please contact 3210-5562~3.
