Today, we are working in Cambodia, Myanmar, China, Indonesia and regionally throughout Asia. We have offices in Beijing, Jakarta and Phnom Penh.
We began our work in Asia in 1996.
We have maintained an office in Beijing since 2001. Over the years, we’ve developed a comprehensive programme of human rights education capacity building support to Chinese academia and key justice sector actors such as the Chinese prosecution service.
The regional programme aims to contribute to enhanced practical implementation of international human rights standards in Asia through effective NHRIs and academic institutions.
We have been involved in human rights work in Cambodia since 2008. We opened an office in Phnom Penh in 2013.
We initiated ourcooperation on human rights capacity building in Myanmar in late 2011, as the first international organisation to engage in human rights capacity building with their newly established national human rights institution.
We initiated activities in Indonesia in 1999. In 2001 and 2002, we intensified cooperation with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights and an office was established in Jakarta in 2005.
