[Webinar] Cambodia as ASEAN Chair: Prospects for Human Rights in 2022
Cambodia, the youngest member of ASEAN, will chair the ten-member bloc next year.

However, Cambodia’s bleak national human rights record and its continuous disregard for
human rights, may derail ASEAN’s ambitious hopes to be a community advocating for the people, peace, and prosperity.

This webinar aims to
- Provide a brief civil society assessment of Brunei’s performance as ASEAN chair in 2021;
- Deliver a forecast on Cambodia’s position on the most pressing regional and domestic issues as next year’s ASEAN chair;
- Provide recommendations to ASEAN civil society organisations and relevant stakeholders to effectively engage with Cambodia and lobby with ASEAN and its sectoral bodies to respect, protect, and fulfil human rights
