  Hanyang University(HYU) Law School Professor Park Chan-un is nearly finished with his work at the Swedish headquarters of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. He has been staying in Sweden since last year, conducting research on National Human Rights Institutions.
  Park is renowned professor in the field of human rights and law, and has campaigned for human rights since his early years as a lawyer. His career took a turn when he accepted the job of Director General of the Human Rights Policy Bureau at the National Human Rights Commission of Korea in 2005.
  After Professor Park’s term in the government branch, he became a law professor at the HYU Law School, where he himself studied law years before. His current work at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute in Sweden involves studying the many national human rights institutions around the world. His goal is to improve the national human rights institutions in Korea, which he thinks are less developed in comparison with other nations. “The human rights institutions in Korea consist of only professors. Here in Sweden, however, they have a much better infrastructure that includes a library and professional personnel who aid in our research,” he said.
  Professor Park hopes that Korean human rights institutions will one day branch out to foreign countries and provide them with human rights programs. In order to do that however, he believes that Koreans must first acquire a better understanding of what human rights are. He said “I want to make a more equalitarian society in Korea, one where human dignity is respected and no one is discriminated against,” when asked about what the purpose of his work was.
