[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

Speakers:
● Josef Benedict, Asia Pacific Researcher – CIVICUS
● Khin Ohmar, Founder of Progressive Voice
● U Bo Hla Htint, National Unity Government Ambassador to the ASEAN
● Rachel Arinii Judhistari, Director for Policy, WikiMedia
● Chak Sopheap, Executive Director for Cambodian Center for Human Rights
