The establishment of the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) on 23 October 2009, is a milestone in the history of the regional organisation and deserves congratulations. The Solidarity for Asian People’s Advocacy Task Force on ASEAN and Human Rights (SAPA TFAHR) offers this critical performance assessment of first year of AICHR based on its core documents, structure, appointment process, institution building, mandate implementation, handling of cases and external relations. It examines AICHR’s progress, achievements and shortcomings in addressing the human rights situation in Southeast Asia.
