After the UN established basic international human rights conventions and optional protocols, a report was also required to identify and inform the UN of the state of human rights in line with each convention. This national report is a good source of information on how well governments and human rights organizations are protecting human rights. In particular, the number of reports submitted is an indirect indicator of how much interest a state has in their human rights situation. When we look at the indicators, we can see that the number of reports Korea made between 2005 and 2018 steadily increased. Based on the number of reports submitted between 2015 and 2018, it can be said that the government and human rights institutions are making a lot of efforts to understand the current human rights situation.
