Lead by the Representative of Thailand, Dr. Seree Nonthasoot, the AICHR conducted a workshop on the sharing of experiences on the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) process among ASEAN Member States on 19 September 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand, supported by the Royal Thai Government. The workshop was opened by remarks by the Chair of the AICHR, H.E. U Kyaw Tint Swe, and the keynote address by Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Royal Thai Government, H.E. Mr. Sihasak Phuangketkeow. The workshop aimed to be a capacity-building forum for stakeholders in ASEAN Member States who are preparing for the Mid-Term review and Second Cycle of the UPR. It also aimed to be a consultative platform for the AICHR and the ASEAN Member States on the ways forward for their collaboration in the UPR process.

The first session of the workshop dealt with the current developments on the UPR process and offered recommendations on how AICHR could contribute to the said process from a regional platfom. This was then followed by the presentation from Thailand on their experience with the Mid-Term Implementation Assessment Report. Thailand is the first country in South East Asia to submit itself to the Mid-term review. The session offered good practices and lessons learned from Thailand’s experience. The ASEAN Member States present appreciated Thailand’s willingness to share their experiences and assistance. Thailand was commended on their initiative and commitment to ensure the dissemination of their UPR report, monitoring and Mid-Term Report to all concerned parties including government agencies and stakeholders. - See more at: http://aichr.org/news/aichr-workshop-on-the-sharing-of-experiences-on-universal-periodic-review-process-among-asean-member-states/#sthash.blQ3T2dg.dpuf
