Laying the Foundation for Peace through Human Rights


KGFP Korea Global Forum for Peace 2020


• Session: Laying the Foundation for Peace through Human Rights

• Date & Time: 2020.09.08(Tue) ┃13:30~15:30(KST)

• Organization: United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Seoul


The proposed session will present views on how to support efforts to build peace and prevent conflict by applying a more inclusive and human rights based approach to the peace process. The main speaker will present OHCHR’s findings, based on interviews and other research, of the main elements of such an approach on the Korean peninsula, including views of escapees from the DPRK; critical human rights elements; and inclusiveness. The session will also discuss how some areas of human rights can be included in dialogue with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea through using international human rights mechanisms that the country has engaged with. It may draw on examples from other relevant contexts in order to show how the inclusion of human rights elements can make the peace process more meaningful for the population, and more sustainable.
