Human Rights in Southeast Asia in Times of Pandemic

In the ASEAN region as elsewhere in the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a genuine health emergency, prompting governments to take extraordinary, unprecedented measures in an effort to curb its lethal impact. While measures were taken by ASEAN Member States to genuinely combat the proliferation of the virus, others used it, sometimes concurrently, as a pretext for increasing oppression and violating human rights. Some measures have proven to be detrimental particularly to groups that are routinely subject to abuse.

Between March and May 2020, FORUM-ASIA together with the network of Solidarity for ASEAN Peoples Advocacy (SAPA) and SHAPE-SEA, conducted a series of webinars to discuss the measures taken by ASEAN and its Member States in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and their impact on the human rights situation on the ground.

The report “Human Rights in Southeast Asia in Times of Pandemic” summarised the proceedings of the webinar series, while FORUM-ASIA’s poster series gathered all the key information and learnings of the report, with the aim of promoting them to the wider public.

Here below you can find all the posters produced by FORUM-ASIA for this series.
