About the Conference
In the 1990s, the “Asian values” debate – with its attack on the discourse of the universality of human rights – presented a challenge to building human rights capacity in the Asia-Pacific region. Since then, however, a growing number of inter-governmental networks and nongovernmental organisations have emerged, sharing human rights concerns throughout the region. As the Asia-Pacific
region becomes inextricably enmeshed in global markets, its human rights record is also coming under increasing international scrutiny. The time is ripe to consider the extent to which existing or potential institutional arrangements might improve the human rights records of, and facilitate the development of a regional community among, Asia-Pacific nations.
