Human Rights and Freedom in South Korea

Human Rights and Freedom in South Korea. Statistics on political and social freedom, equality and tolerance, as part of overall national development.

This page is already launched, but I've never announced it on LiveJournal, so here it is.

South Korea performs very well in ensuring human rights and freedom compared to most other countries. It comes in the top 20 in opposing gender inequality. It does better than average in eliminating modern slavery, its nominal commitment to Human Rights, supporting personal, civil & economic freedoms, in terms of its commentary from Human Rights Watch, its Global Peace Index rating, fighting corruption, supporting press freedom and in LGBT equality. Human Rights Watch specifically note that South Korea 'generally respects' basic civil and political liberties. It does not succeed in everything, however and it does worse than average in fighting anti-semitic opinions. There are "unreasonable restrictions" on freedom of expression and freedom of association and there is too much discrimination against racial and ethnic minorities.
