We introduce one new program officer and three interns of Human Asia.
Prior to joining Human Asia as part of the Educational Development team, my academic and professional work has mainly centred upon historical systematic human rights violations across the Korean peninsula. I hope now to be able to apply these past experiences to a wider regional context. The absence of a regional system of human rights protection for Asia, and the ambivalence of some Asian states towards existing human rights regimes means that many citizens remain marginalised from wider society. By working together with Human Asia, I hope to contribute towards making progress for such individuals, and towards implementing real social change for those who need it most.

Hello, I am KIM JU YEON, an intern who will be working at Human Asia
People would discriminate just because they are different from me and would not listen to their voices. But if all of us are interested and admitting to differences, then the human rights of minorities will also be respected. I will also do my best to improve my human rights awareness with a sense of responsibility as a Human Asia intern.
Hello My name is Subin Park. I am currently majoring in Political Science and International Relations at Korea University. I am honored to work for underprivileged people in Asia, where I live.
Human rights are the basic rights that everyone is entitled to regardless of nationality, gender, religion and any other status. Still in our society, there are blind spots where groups or individuals cannot enjoy their rights. I want to give strength, and a ray of light to the powerless, vulnerable people by protecting them from infringement of rights. Through Human Asia, I will put my will into action, and ceaselessly try to become a human rights advocate.
