Regional Economic Cooperation and Human Rights in Asia

Antonio Tujan, Jr.


Conference by APRN and Rights & Democraty - June 4-6, 2004 - Olongapo City, Philippines




[APRN-IBON]

This event brought together approximately 40 civil society representatives and academics from across South Asia and Southeast Asia. Through a series of workshops and discussion panels, participants evaluated the current status of cooperation agreements in South and Southeast Asia and assessed their impact on human rights in the region.

This report provides a synopsis of the various panel presentations and workshop discussions, with a revised version of the seminar's background paper entitled Economic Integration and Human Rights in Asia: An Overview. We have also included selected conference papers in their entirety in order to reflect the diversity of the discussion. Finally, the event agenda and participant list is annexed.

Rights & Democracy and the Asia Pacific Research Center hope that this compilation of materials will be a useful resource for organizations and individuals considering the adoption of a human rights framework to address poverty and underdevelopment in Asia.
