The Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) of the University of Sydney will organize the ASEAN Forum 2021 on August 27, 2021, from 2:00 pm to 4:00 (Australian Eastern Standard Time) via Zoom.

It has been just under a decade since ASEAN promulgated its ASEAN Human Rights Declaration, marking a rhetorical shift in its approach to human rights in the region. Across the region, its member countries have vastly different approaches to and experiences with human rights. In this event, we offer a snapshot of the current human rights situation in ASEAN, the approach ASEAN is taking and how human rights is faring in the context of increasing geopolitical power struggles across the region.
