FORUM-ASIA is proud to present Regional Human Rights Mechanisms in South Asia: Past efforts and ways forward.

The report presents the varied snapshots of the human rights situations across South Asian counties, the need for a regional human rights mechanism, progress that has been made and opportunities moving forward.

It is crucial that a regional human rights mechanism is established in a region home to almost two billion people. A regional mechanism has the potential to bridge international human rights standards and national mechanisms.

A regional mechanism is necessary to assist in the implementation of internationally recognised human rights norms and standards at the national levels, and to facilitate a regional solution to a human rights problem that triggers regional consequences.

Greater protection of human rights within a region can ultimately result in enhanced regional peace, security and development. There is a strong incentive for governments to promote and protect human rights regionally when severe violations of people’s rights can lead to conflicts and instability in neighbouring countries.
