About Korean Research Center for Guardianship and Trusts

Korean Research Center for Guardianship and Trusts (KCGAT)was established as of 1st September 2016. Before the launch of KCGAT, the members of KCGAT had, since September 2013, rigorously conducted research on the integration of persons with impairments to decision making ability into communities as a part of ‘Social Sciences  Korea  project‘,  which  has  been launched as from the year of 2011 by NRF.

Those research members have provided for  theoretical  basis  for  legislation  work  for  the  improvementof human rights of the persons with impairments to decision making ability. They have contributed  to  the  enactment  of  the Guarantee of the Rights of, and Support to, Persons  with Developmental  Disabilities  Act  2014  which provides in accordance with Article 9 that the guardianship services can be provided for to adults with developmental disabilities by guardianship organizations and civil volunteers. They have also contributed to the amendment of Civil Procedure  Code  which  can  be  regarded  as  fully  respecting the original purpose of adult guardianship law reform, namely the respect of self-determination and normalization of persons under guardianship.

The most important feature of the amended Civil Procedure Act is to have regard to the use  of  guardianship  as  a last resort. Lastly, they have contributed to the reform of the Mental Health Act in 2016 in that the requirements of involuntary admission to the psychiatric hospitals and institutions should be followed in due legal process. KCGAT succeeded these results and performance of the research conducted by them, and is also financed by National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). KCGAT’s research theme is as follows.

The Purpose of  KCGAT  is to propose a Korean model of the supported decision making system for persons with impairments to decision making ability. KCGAT will be focusing on the reformation of the advocacy and support  services  for  disabled  persons  and elderly, some of which have been discussed in the Korean Parliament.  KRCGT hopes  the  research  results to  contribute  to  the  development  of  human rights of disabled persons including persons with impairments to decision making ability.
