2023 Summer human rights program


The Center for Human Rights at Sookmyung Women's University organized a program titled "Kium" to learn about human rights through online lectures during the summer vacation. The program was conducted by applying through Snoway and watching videos provided by the National Human Rights Commission of Korea on Snowboard. The 11-week program was held from June 22 to August 18. The theme was "Why do we need anti-discrimination law?" and focused on discrimination among other forms of human rights violations. During the program, Lee Jun-il, a member of the National Human Rights Commission of Korea, lectured through weeks 1-6, explaining the concept of anti-discrimination law. The lecture explained that the purpose of legally prohibiting discrimination is to relieve the victims and to sanction the offenders. He said, "New anti-discrimination law need to be created because the existing ones do not immediately reflect the new forms of discrimination in broadcasting and advertising that are emerging as the times change." This indicates that the current law should be supplemented to provide relief to victims in various areas. From Week 7 to the final Week 11, Professor Park Kyung-shin of Korea University was the lecturer. He explained discrimination through false expression that occurs online. He said that only when the expression itself causes external harm can it be defined as false expression and punished. He concluded the lecture by emphasizing freedom of expression as long as it does not negatively affect others. After watching the lectures, Joo Hae-lin, Division of Business Administration '21, said, "It was useful to learn about specific concepts and examples of discrimination. I realized that I should apply what I learned in the lectures to my daily life and be careful about whether my behavior is perceived as discrimination." The "Kium" program provided an opportunity for students to learn about the types of discrimination that exist in the real world.
