In the wake of violent attacks that have rocked the Asia Pacific this year, the 2019 APF Biennial Conference explored the role of national human rights institutions (NHRIs) to counter hate and discrimination.

Representatives from NHRIs, civil society organisations, government and international agencies in the region contributed to panel discussions examining:

  • Good practice responses to hate and discrimination by NHRIs
  • Building partnerships and cooperation to counter hate and discrimination
  • Measures to be taken to prevent hate and discrimination in all parts of society.

The Conference, held in Seoul on 5 September 2019, was hosted by the National Human Rights Commission of Korea.

The 24th APF Annual Meeting was held on 3-4 September 2019, in the lead up to the Conference.

In addition to presentations from the APF's 25 member institutions, the Annual Meeting included an interactive dialogue with representatives from the Asian NGOs Network on National Human Rights Institutions (ANNI).
