About the Conference

Human rights in Southeast Asia is undergoing a difficult period where advances made in the past decade appear to have eroded away as states and private players act regressively. Examples include the military rule in Thailand, religious extremism in Indonesia, and the steady destruction of civil rights in Malaysia. More recently in the Philippines, a presidential candidate who ran on a patently anti-human rights platform won the majority vote. There are increasing threats to democratic freedoms, the rights of non-citizens, and the livelihood of those economically marginalized in the name of development. The effects of climate change pose a unique challenge to human rights, peace and security not only in the region but also globally. Though many businesses, governments and religious groups discursively embrace human rights, a lot more are actively involved in human rights violations.

In this context, the Fourth International Conference on Human Rights and Peace & Conflict in Southeast Asia is organized to open up space for deep introspection on what ground we have lost; how cyberspace, with social media as its concrete platform, can be harnessed as a medium that speaks truth to power; how to ensure that the rights of peoples affected by climate change are protected, and finally find ways to reclaim the lost ground of human rights and peace that was so hard earned.
