AICHR and the ASEAN Declaration on Human Rights: NGO Perspectives

The ASEAN Studies Center and Freedom House co-hosted a forum at American University that covered a variety of issues related to human rights in Southeast Asia. The forum featured prominent Southeast Asian NGO leaders who specialize in the fields of human rights and development, the mass media, and rights of women and children. The speakers provided valuable insights into the increasingly vibrant human rights colloquy currently taking place as the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) prepares to draft the highly-anticipated ASEAN Declaration of Human Rights.
