Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the mediating effect of disaster relief workers’ job satisfaction in the relationship between their perception of survivors’ rights and their performance of human rights advocacy. Two hundred disaster relief workers in Korea were invited to complete structured questionnaires pertaining to their perception of survivors’ rights, job satisfaction, and their performance of human rights advocacy, and the relationships between these variables were analyzed using correlation and multiple regression analysis. There were significant positive correlations between disaster relief workers’ perception of survivors’ rights, job satisfaction, and performance of human rights advocacy in this study. The higher their perception of survivors’ rights, the greater their performance of human rights advocacy and job satisfaction. Job satisfaction also acted as a mediator to increase the impact of their perception of survivors’ rights on their performance of human rights advocacy. In order to improve the human rights advocacy performance of disaster relief workers, it is necessary to raise their perception of survivors’ rights and increase their job satisfaction by providing a safe and nondiscriminatory work environment for them.
