Korean NGOs Joint Submission to the 2nd Cycle of the UPR on the Republic of Korea

On 23 April 2012, 53 Korean NGOs based in the Republic of Korea (ROK) send a joint NGO submission to the 2nd cycle of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR). The submission aims to evaluate the implementation of the recommendations from the 1st cycle of the UPR and to raise awareness regarding the situation of human rights in the ROK since 2008. The report includes issues of freedom of assembly and association, lacking independence of the National Human Rights Commission of Korea, violation of freedom of expression on the Internet, abuse of the National Security Act and abusive use of force by the law enforcement officers. 

In addition, the report pointed out that the Government is still maintaining the resident registration system which involves taking fingerprints from the holders despite the recommendation from the 1st cycle of the UPR. Also, the report drew attention human trafficking and sex trafficking, especially regarding migrant women, alternative military service, high tuition fee and wage gap between men and women. The report also made several recommendations on each topic. 

The Korean NGO coalition for the 2nd cycle of the UPR on the ROK will advocate about human rights situation in the Republic of Korea and will send a lobby team to the UPR Working Group Session which will be held from 22 October to 5 November.
