The SSK (Social Science Korea) Human Rights Forum is an inter-university research group engaged in multi-year research projects on human rights from a social science perspective, which is an increasingly popular approach to studying human rights. 

The project, led by Principle Investigator Dr. Changrok Soh, is funded by the National Research Foundation of Korea and participating universities

3) to produce world-class research work,

4) to promote human rights through education,

5) to nurture 'next generation' human rights leaders,

and 6) to diffuse international human rights.
