Our Work

2015 

The HRLC Boda prepared the UN Special Rapporteur’s country visit with other civil society organizations and performed the role of secretariat.

The HRLC Boda organized a conference to raise public awareness of the reality of racial discrimination in Korea. The HRLC Boda also put together an NGO report and submitted it to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHRCH). Soyeon Jeong, the head of HRLC Boda, attended the UN Human Rights Council as part of the delegation from Korean civil society, with Wan Lee, the head of Solidarity for Asian Human Rights and Culture, and presented on the reality of racial discrimination in Korea. After completing these activities, Jeong created and distributed a white paper, which is now a valuable resource for future international human rights promotion activities. This work was possible through the consortium of Solidarity for Asian Human Rights and Culture and the HRLC Boda, with the support of Inc. Association Duroo.

2016

The HRLC Boda applied to take part in the human rights protection and promotion activities of the Seoul Metropolitan Government, with the Korean Lawyers for Public Interest and Human Rights(KLPH).

The consortium was chosen as the partner in translating and publishing "Japanese Precedents on Workplace Harassment." Japanese precedents and commentaries were translated and 1,000 copies were published and distributed to human rights organizations, activists, and public institutions under the Seoul Metropolitan Government. The project helped to raise awareness and increase understanding of workplace harassment by introducing specific precedents to Korea.
