    Dear Friends,


    Greetings from Korea Human Rights Foundation in Seoul, Korea!
     
    Korea Human Rights Foundation is a non-governmental organization that conducts research and promotes human rights education in Korea.
     
    I am writing to you to invite you and your organization to join an academic essay contest that we will be hosting as part of the program of the 2012 World Human Rights Cities Forum to be held in Gwangju, South Korea on 16-18 May 2012.
     
    The 2012 Global Human Rights Essay Contest on “Human Right City” (Human Rights City Essay Contest, hereafter HRC Essay Contest) is a joint initiative by The Institute for Social Development and Policy Research of Seoul National University, Korea and the Korea Human Rights Foundation with support of the Metropolitan City of Gwangju.
     
    The HRC Essay Contest was launched in order to promote the idea of a human rights city as a means to localize human rights in the context of glocalization (global_local). Its primary goal is to promote youth participation in the building of a human rights city through the articulation of their visions, ideas and experiences.
     
    The submissions to be received before xcepted until March 15th,
    3 finalists to be chosen among submissions will be invited to the 2012 WHRCF (Gwangju, 16-18 May 2012) to compete in the finals.  They will make public presentation of their essay before judges on 16 May 2012 during the WHRCF.  
     
    Deadline for the registration to participate is 31 January and actual deadline of essay submissions will be 15 March 2012.  
     
    All students, undergraduate and graduate and youth before age 35 interested in the topic of human rights city are encouraged to apply.
     
    Please, pass the information along to anyone that might be eligible at your university, institutions or networks.
     
    I have attached a file with specific information regarding the competition. Also, please visit our website for more info: http://humanrightscity.net/eng/subpage.php?pagecode=060101
