On Sunday, 17th June 2018, Human Asia held the 6th Global Human Rights School with the topic of refugees and human rights.
We invited Jaeseok Kwak, the president of Migration and Diaspora Research Institute, for the lecture session in OnestopPrep Apgujeong.
Students learned basic information about refugee such as hunger and persecution, why refugees face such difficult realities, and why it is a global issue.
Particularly, participants discussed Korean’s exclusive attitude towards refugee issues.
After the lecture, students presented their posters including the reason for different coloring and unique drawing.
By listening to other students’ ideas, participants got opportunities to broaden their horizon to think about refugee. Mr. Kwak was so touched by students’ efforts and creative ideas.
In the afternoon, students went Seoul Cinema to participate in the 4th Korean Refugee Film Festival.
While heading to the cinema, they did the street campaign holding their posters.
They watched ‘Breath’ dealing with Chakma people flew from India to Korea.
Not only watching a movie, they also experienced different campaign booths hold by Rush, Nancen, and Human Asia.
They were introduced how those organizations work for the refugee issue and how important their effort is.
We hope that students could learn refugee issue through this workshop. We would like to appreciate participants’ passion, and please raise attention to the Teenager Human Rights School in September.
