The 5th International Winter Course ‘Human Rights and Asia 2018’ will provide a unique opportunity to discuss human rights and various contemporary themes such as freedom of expression and democracy, climate change, gender/sexuality, economic, social-economic rights and business in the context of Asia. Participants will be involved in a multidimensional learning that includes not only lectures, but also presentations, discussions and visiting the field of human rights advocacy in Korea.
