Southeast Asia Human Rights


Freedom House has established partnerships with a number of leading regional human rights defender networks in Southeast Asia and provides funding, advocacy support, training, and networking opportunities for local groups focusing on human rights and freedom to interact with national, regional, and internationals institutions. Freedom House supports civil society groups’ efforts to actively engage ASEAN’s human rights mechanism, the ASEAN Inter-Governmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) and provides opportunities for strategic exchanges and knowledge-sharing sessions among activists.  Freedom House also maintains side-by-side collaboration with local partners to conduct concerted advocacy efforts on national and regional threats to freedom of expression and association.
