Consultation Workshop: Engaging the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) — The People’s Views

I received an email from former-NMP, Siew Kum Hong, written and sent out on behalf of a group called MARUAH (

MARUAH is a human rights group that has been dialoguing at the regional and national level with governments and other stakeholders on the ASEAN Human Rights Body under the ASEAN Charter.

The ASEAN Human Rights Body, now termed the ASEAN Inter-Governmental Commission on Human Rights (AIGCHR), is here to stay — see the Terms of Reference. A crucial precondition for the AIGCHR to be meaningful (even within the constraints of its TOR) is for all civil society members and other stakeholders to at least know what it is about and how it can impact our work.

Accordingly, MARUAH is organising a public consultation workshop to be held on 22 Aug 2009. If you are interested to attend the workshop, you may register online. Alternatively, you can fill up the registration form and submit  it by Tuesday, 18 August 2009.
