The Summer Institute in International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and Human Rights is a regionally based workshop held in partnership with organizations in Southeast Asia to consider key IHL and human rights issues, past and present, facing the region. Established in 2008, the Summer Institute is designed for participants working across a broad range of fields and disciplines and is best suited to those working within the Asia Pacific region, whose work has an Asia Pacific focus, or who wish to engage in comparative analysis regarding the application of IHL and human rights instruments as they apply in historical and political context of the region.
The fifth annual Summer Institute will be held in Singapore, once again. This year’s course will focus on the topic of business and human rights. In keeping with the rationale behind the establishment of the Summer Institute, the curriculum will focus primarily on case studies from Asia-Pacific countries, while encouraging comparative exploration with other regions of the world.
Further information on the course content, including a draft course outline and the complete faculty roster, will be posted on the Summer Institute 2012 webpage shortly. Prospective participants should continue to check our website for updates later in the spring: http://www.eastwestcenter.org/research/asian-international-justice-initiative/summer-institute Specific inquiries may be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Summer Institute faculty includes distinguished practitioners and experts from the region and beyond, including Rafendi Djamin, Indonesia Representative to the ASEAN Inter-Governmental Commission on Human Rights; Ong Keng Yong, Singapore’s High Commissioner to Malaysia; and Mark Hodge from the Global Business Initiative.
