ASIA Centre is conducting a round table discussion called “Human Rights Violations in Singapore: Holding the State Accountable” on July 28 at Success Training Centre, from 2pm till 5pm.

During this event the book The Universal Periodic Review of Southeast Asia: Civil Society Perspectives will also be launched.

The book narrates what individuals and civil society groups utilizing the United Nations’ (UN) mechanism (Universal Periodic Review) have accomplished in holding countries in Southeast Asia to account in the area of human rights violations.

A panel will also be discussing the human rights situation in Singapore, as well as giving their feedback as to whether or not the mechanisms set by the UN are adequate in terms of accountability for human rights, or, whether a change in a nation’s leadership guaranteeing that nation’s accountability be more suitable in situations where human rights violations have been on the increase.
