Shia Rights Watch in South Korea
SRW is proud to take part in the sixty-sixth Department of Public Information (DPI)/Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Conference hosted by South Korea in Gyeongju from 30 May to 1 June 2016.
The conference is held under the theme “Education for Global Citizenship: Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals Together”. By its participation SRW aims to create and strengthen its global partnerships in support of the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals through educating the world about minority rights, especially Shia Muslims.
“Education is one of the most powerful means to spread acceptance and reduce violence,” says Mustafa Akhwand, the director of SRW. “We hope our participation in this event creates opportunities for educating international committees about the rights of Shia and advocating for them”.
