MARUAH (Singapore Working Group for an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism) would like to invite you, the public, to a Consultation Workshop: “Engaging the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) – The People’s Views”.
The Terms of Reference(TOR) for the ASEAN Human Rights Body, as enshrined in Article 14 of the ASEAN Charter, have been accepted recently by ASEAN Foreign Ministers. This October the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) will be born at the ASEAN Summit. This is a considerable breakthrough for all countries in ASEAN.
This Commission can only get better when stakeholders are engaged. In the next three months countries will select their government representative to the Commission. The TOR will go into effect from October. There are other sectoral bodies on women, children and migrant workers.
How will the people sector engage in this process? How will the people sector ensure that the Commission will become an enabling instrument? Here’s the chance to be engaged. Please come. Please share your thoughts. Please be a stakeholder in this process.
Please download the e-flyer here. The reply slip will be uploaded shortly.
This event is sponsored by Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, and partnered with the Insitute of Southeast Asian Studies and ASEAN Studies Centre.
