Human Asia's Human Rights Schools:

Human Asia strengthens solidarity and social empathy on human rights in Asia through diverse educational and advocacy programs for young people. Our human rights schools allow young activists to gain rights-related knowledge and human rights sensitivity through lectures and group activity work. We provide human rights schools in both Korean (spring & autumn) and English (summer). We also host the ‘Moving Human Rights School’ where specialists visit schools and provide lectures upon the request of our human rights clubs.
