  • About the Commission
    The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of the
    Republic of Korea was

    relaunched on 10 December 2020 as a result of revision of the Framework Act on Settling Past Affairs for Truth and Reconciliation. The amendment was to accommodate the urgent needs of survivors and victims’ families who have sought truth and justice for past state violence.

    The Truth and Reconciliation Commission was established as an independent body to investigate and uncover the truth about the anti-Japanese independence movement, overseas Koreans, mass atrocities during the Korean War, various human rights violations that occurred during Korea’s authoritarian rule and killings by hostile forces.

    Our Commission will do its best to take the lead in finding the truth.
