Date: 26 – 28 September 2007
Venue: Siem Reap, Cambodia

The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Informal Seminar on Human Rights aims to promote better mutual understanding and co-operation between the countries of Asia and Europe in the area of political dialogue, particularly on human rights issues, between government officials, academics and civil society participants of the 43 ASEM countries.

The Informal Seminar on Human Rights was launched in 1998 and has since provided governments and civil society organisations an arena for non-confrontational debate on human rights issues. This September, 104 representatives from Asian and European governments and civil society organisations will convene in Siem Reap, Cambodia for the 8th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights, to discuss issues on Freedom of Expression, taking the basis in Article 19 of the 1948 UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights which reads: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers".

This 8th seminar on human rights will be hosted by the government of Cambodia. The series of ASEM Informal Seminars on Human Rights are co-organised by Asia-Europe Foundation, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Sweden.
