Call for Papers: 5th Conference on Human Rights

November 24, 2021
Other Event in Indonesia

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the world. In the name of the nation state’s health and sovereignty, some countries have adopted strict policies to tackle the pandemic, which also violate basic rights. The right to work, freedom of expression, freedom of information, freedom of assembly, minority and vulnerable rights are some of the most troubled rights during the pandemic. In some developing countries, human rights matters are even more complicated, mixed with authoritarianism, poverty, marginalisation, and populism. Countries in Asia provide some striking examples.

To respond to those matters, the Centre for Human Rights, Multiculturalism and Migration (CHRM2) at the University of Jember, Indonesia; the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre at the University of Sydney, Australia; the Indonesian Consortium for Human Rights Lecturers (SEPAHAM Indonesia); the National Commission on Human Rights (KOMNAS HAM); and the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) Indonesia are delighted to organise the 5th Conference on Human Rights. The conference is expected to become an academic platform to share ideas and experiences from academia, practitioners, civil society organisations, and governments in Asia and beyond.

The call for papers is now open for the 5th Conference on Human Rights on the theme of “Human rights and Human Security in Asia during the COVID-19 Pandemic”. Submissions are open until 30 April 2021.
