The ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) will organise the “AICHR Regional Forum on Media and Human Rights in ASEAN” at Istana Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 16 and 17 May 2016. This Forum is a continuation of the AICHR’s endeavor to reach out to the media practitioners in ASEAN in promoting and protecting human rights in the region.

 

This Regional Forum will be jointly organised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Malaysia with the support of National Partners namely the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia, and the Human Rights Commission of Malaysia (SUHAKAM), and in collaboration with the Regional EU-ASEAN Dialogue Instrument (READI), Human Rights Facility.

 

The Regional Forum aims at providing the media with a panoramic understanding and exposure on the professionalism and ethics in reporting as well as on the regional (ASEAN) and international human rights instruments in relation to the work of media practitioners. It also aims at providing an empowering platform for the media practitioners and human rights experts to discuss and exchange views on the challenges and their potential roles in promoting and protecting human rights in ASEAN.

 

A total of 70 participants from ASEAN member countries are expected to partake in the Regional Forum, including the Representatives of AICHR, representatives of related government agencies of ASEAN Member States, media practitioners, academicians and human rights experts who will share their thoughts and expertise on the development of human rights mechanisms and issues in ASEAN.

 

The Ministry is of the view that with the knowledge and exposure gained from this Forum, the media – both conventional and the new media – would be able to further contribute in raising the awareness on human rights, including the ASEAN Human Rights Declaration (AHRD), to the different segments of society in the region.
