Free Event- Open to the public
The organization Strengthening Human Rights and Peace Research and Education in ASEAN/Souteast Asia, also known as SHAPE-SEA, will be launching its newest book on the Human Rights Outlook in Southeast Asia at the FCCT on March 27th, 2018. In addition to the book launch, SHAPESEA will also be holding a panel discussion with experts on human rights and peace in Southeast Asia.
The Human Rights Outlook in Southeast Asia series of books provide insight on human rights issues that are occurring during a specific time period in the various Southeast Asian countries.
By having each book focus on a specific time period, SHAPE-SEA hopes the entire series provides an in-depth examination of the progression or regression of human rights in the region.
The chapters in each book of the series are written by country experts, and each chapter not only includes factual data, but also, the writers' professional opinions and impressions of the issues.
SHAPE-SEA believes that drafting the books in this manner allow each volume to be an important resource for human rights defenders and others with an interest in human rights.
In turn, SHAPE-SEA will be providing a copy of the newest Human Rights Outlook in Southeast Asia to each person that attends the event.
There will also be a panel discussion featuring human rights and peace in Southeast Asia. The panel is titled "Human Rights & Peace in Southeast Asia: Righting the Wrongs."
The panel will be chaired by renowned human rights scholar Dr. Sriprapha Petcharamesree.
Other confirmed panelists include:
Dr. Seree Nonthasoot, Representative of Thailand to the ASEAN Intergovernmental Human Rights Commission; and
Mr. Edmund Bon, Representative of Malaysia to the ASEAN Intergovernmental Human Rights Commission.
