The Human Rights Conference brings together academics, activists, and practitioners to discuss current human rights issues in Southeast Asia and beyond. The relationship between indigeneity and human rights presents challenges in promoting democracy and fulfilling human rights in Asia and the Pacific. These challenges are due to the lack of a unified term for indigeneity and differing concepts promoted by various groups. The term indigeneity is also used to reject certain human rights norms that are seen as incompatible with local customs, the indigeneity context, and national interests. In response to these issues, we are pleased to organize the Human Rights Conference. The conference aims to serve as an academic hub where scholars, observers, practitioners, government officials, and civil society can exchange ideas and experiences regarding indigeneity and human rights in Asia and the Pacific from different perspectives.
