Imagine that you are sitting in a chair in a movie theater for your entire life. The theater is dark and all you can see is the wide movie screen in front of you. You can’t move because your hands and your ankles are tied to the chair. The back of the chair is high above your head so that it is impossible for you to look behind. All you can see is this wide screen in front of you and people sitting next to you in the same chair as you are seated. You’ve been watching movie...


Mauritius Island is not just about stunning beaches, the Sun, summer, beautiful sights, amazing food, delicious fruits, a rich folklore, a mix of cultures, hospitality and the “Paradise Island” that is portrayed on postal cards, describing perfect spots for tourists to spend their holidays. Since 1968, at the occasion of the Independence Day on the 12th of March, our National Anthem is heartily sung in every corner of the Island: “As one people, as one nation, in peace, j...

According to UNHCR, more than ever since World War II, the number of refugees are increasing. Of course, we have the people in the Middle East, and the new group who need help because of climate change. However, today I'd like to talk about refugees who come from a place about a 5-hour drive from my home, Daejeon, South Korea. Our closest neighbor, North Korea. Recently, I had the chance to act as the Special Rapporteur when we were doing a model UN assembly in a gifted edu...

The first constitutional assembly was not...

Today, the whole world is celebrating International Day of the Girl Child. This year’s theme is “Empowering Adolescent Girls: Ending the Cycle of Violence”.

For Day of the Girl Child, we hope to focus our message on child marriage. Child marriage is unfortunately a widespread practice in our country...
