The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) adopted a Declaration on Human Rights in November 2012.  Civil society groups in the region generally criticized this important milestone. What are the specific challenges and constraints faced by Southeast Asian nations in building regional norms for human rights protection? What are the factors that could contribute to a more robust institutional and normative commitment to human rights protection in the region?

Dr. Morada is Director for Regional Diplomacy and Capacity Building at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, where he specializes on Southeast Asian security, regionalism, and democratization. He was a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington DC in 2008 and is a former professor of political science at the University of the Philippines Diliman, Quezon City.
