In this webinar, we are having presentations from two Seoul-based activists, Hanui Choi and Seungho Park, about peace education and conscientious objection in South Korea.
Hanui Choi, Coordinator and Peace Education Facilitator at PEACE MOMO, is informing us about their ongoing peace education project, and giving us a framework of the militarisation of education in South Korea, and the ongoing campaigns to counter it. PEACE MOMO is a Seoul-based organisation providing peace education programmes for teachers, civic educators, and students.
Seungho Park, a conscientious objector and an activist from World without War, is informing us about the history of resistance to military service in South Korea, the current status of conscientious objectors in the country and discussing prospects for an improvement in the rights of conscientious objectors. World without War is a pacifist and antimilitarist organisation campaigning for the rights of conscientious objectors in South Korea since 2003.
