Conference Call: Universal Periodic Review in Southeast Asia, September 2016, Bangkok

Asia Centre is proud to announce the

Universal Periodic Review in Southeast Asia: An Evidence-Based Regional Assessment.
15th – 17th September 2016, Asia Centre, Bangkok, Thailand

By May 2016, each state in Southeast Asia will have completed its second cycle of the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR). But what is the impact of the UPR on human rights in the region? And does the focus on constructive dialogue and the state-centric nature of the process help improve the situation?

Asia Centre – an independent non-profit social initiative based in Bangkok – is bringing together academics and researchers for an evidence-based analysis of the UPR’s impact on Southeast Asia. The findings will be compiled into a publication after the seminar.

Abstract Submission: Submit an abstract of 300 words and a short bio by 30th May 2016. For more information please refer to the attached call for abstracts.

Conference Fees:
USD 150 Early bird rate until 15 June 2016
USD 75   Special Student Rate
