THE ADOPTION OF THE ASEAN HUMAN RIGHTS DECLARATION

We don't know the real content of ASEAN Human Rights Declaration. However the declaration has been demanded from civil society within ASEAN countries because they thought that it doesn't meet with international standard. The Cambodian government as head of ASEAN rejected all request from civil society because she thinks that it's not good to consult with civil society.

Please see the original source about declaration of Human Rights were adopted by all member of ASEAN members.
