The Korean Truth and Reconciliation Commission was set up in 2005 with the purpose of disclosing historical crimes and human rights violations in South Korea that had previously been kept hidden or secret as well as to provide assistance for the victims of these crimes. It is the only one of its kind in Asia and is intended to be a model for other countries.
Prof. Dr. Young-jo Lee, born in 1955, earned his doctoral degree in political science from Harvard University. Before joining the Korean Truth and Reconciliation Commission, he was a professor at various Korean universities as well as at the American University in the U.S.A.
