BACKGROUND

Human rights are evolving rapidly, with transformations to both protection mechanisms and international standards. Effective human rights defenders are required to understand this changing context. In the South, East and South East Asian regions, reversals in the process of democratization, the reemergence of support for strong governments, and the pursuit of neoliberal economic policies pose numerous challenges for those engaged in human rights protection.


A better understanding of the contexts and appreciation of evolution of norms will assist in identifying and implementing appropriate strategies for protection of human rights.  Therefore, human rights practitioners whether governmental or non-governmental, should strengthen their analytical and conceptual skills related to human rights protection. The objective of the Advanced Learning Program is to provide a course, which addresses these needs


PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

The program is for mid-level professionals working in human rights who want to be updated on the contemporary developments in the human rights field.


The program will facilitate a critical engagement with the evolving contexts and contemporary challenges in human rights practice and develop a better understanding of strategies of promotion and protection adopted by people working on human rights.


WHO CAN APPLY?

Þ    Government officials and staff of national human rights institutions whose work is related to human rights.

Þ    Representatives from civil society groups working on specific issues related to human rights issues of concern to disadvantaged groups.

Þ    Human Rights defenders

Þ    Academics and graduate students.

In the selection process, consideration shall be given to gender balance and regional and country representation.


THE PROGRAM

The learning program will be a seminar based intensive workshop.  Participants will be expected to prepare a pre-program task. The program will be highly participatory; each participant will be actively involved in contributing to as well as learning from the program.


COSTS

The program costs are:

  • Registration fees of 100 USD.
  • Accommodation and food, 250 USD

CALL FOR APPLICANTS!

Strengthening Human Rights and Peace Education in ASEAN/Southeast Asia (SHAPE-SEA)

Job Opening for Program Officers (2) and Administrative Officer (1)

Application Deadline: April 2, 2015 (17:00 Bangkok Time)

Southeast Asian human rights and peace academics have been contributing to the movement of upholding core principles of universality, equality and non-discrimination through study programmes, publications, capacity building training and research.  The situation of human rights and peace in Southeast Asia/ASEAN has been gradually improving over the past decades, despite ongoing conflicts and challenges. For the past years, The Southeast Asian Human Rights Studies Network (SEAHRN) and the ASEAN University Network-Human Rights Education Theme (AUN-HRE) have both been working towards improving human rights and peace in Southeast Asia through higher education.


In February 2015, SEAHRN and AUN-HRE, with the Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies, Mahidol University and the Swedish International Development Agency, launched a multi-year program called Strengthening Human Rights and Peace Education in ASEAN/Southeast Asia (SHAPE-SEA). The program has three components -- applied research, capacity building and publications – and the strategy in implementing the program is to directly involve and engage universities in Southeast Asian countries to play a more significant role in promoting human rights and peace by contributing research, and by increasing the knowledge of human rights and peace through incorporating human rights and peace into university education.

Building Bonds: IHRP Faculty Meets with Dr. Johanna Zulueta of Soka University

Print PDF

On 27 February 2015, Dr. Johanna Zulueta of the Faculty of International Liberal Arts of Soka University in Tokyo, Japan met with Dr. Coeli Barry of the IHRP to discuss her current research and future plans for collaborative research with a Thai counterpart on retirement migration in Southeast Asia. Dr. Zulueta was in Bangkok for a short research trip to conduct preliminary data gathering on Okinawan transnationalism and Okinawan Prefectural Associations in Southeast Asia.

 Dr. Zulueta has been researching migration between Okinawa and the Philippines for more than a decade. Her research focuses on the offspring of Okinawan women, 'war brides', and Filipino base workers stationed in Okinawa during the American Occupation Period (1945-1972). Much of her research examines ethnic identity constructions of these offspring, who call themselves “Nisei” (or second-generation in Japanese). In her PhD dissertation [Hitotsubashi University, March 2011] Dr. Zulueta explored return migration processes of the Nisei to Okinawa as well as perceptions of “home” among them. She is currently preparing a monograph based on her dissertation, as well as a monograph looking at Okinawan war brides married to Filipino men, including their migration trajectories, war memories, perceptions of home and return, as well as death and end-of-life decisions.
