La voix des droits de l’Homme

Human rights voice

« It was never the people who complained of the universality of human rights, nor did the people  consider human rights as a western or northern imposition. It was often their leaders who did so”

 

Secretary general Kofi A Annan

 

We are a non governmental organisation (Non profit organisation) and we are actively involved in the sphere of International Human Rights, Global security , economic development, economic justice and International Justice, business and economic rights, conflict resolution  .

 

We are especially concerned on the daily  Disappearances, torture, police abuse , corruption in justice system …these are too common practices in the nations of south and south east Asia.  South Asia includes some of its poorest countries .  Civil war, ethnic tension, religious persecutions  and terrorism are but some of the ailments of this region, as are the abuse of government  power, censorship, and human rights violations by the corrupt politicians, army, police and judicial circles .

 

With 27 Asian NGO’s  as our affiliates and correspondents status from grass root level to highly developed one’s we regularly exchange expertise and ways to overcome the problems these NGO’s  face . Also we find ways to strengthen these NGO’s.

 

We have specific interest in the working of NGO’s working with issues of Women, Child labour, religious minorities and uplifting of under developed rural populations.

The largest part of humanity lives in Asia. East and South east  Asia are currently experiencing enormous economic growth. As the economic importance of the region grows, so does its political importance. No global problem will be solved without this region's contribution. At the same time the majority of the world's poor are Asian; The region is suffering from massive environmental destruction, and the social problems of the rapid economic development are obvious . Human Rights violations are wide spread, and minorities oppressed.

 

In Asia, civil socities are emerging , are struggling for democratic liberties and are no longer leaving the future to their countries to governments, generals, and businessmen. Often they face the same problems that are currently being faced in Europe ; Not rarely, they find different answers to ours. In Europe these developments are widely ignored. But it is not only that Asia can learn from Europe, but also Europe can learn from Asia. Thus we do not perceive intercultural exchange as a one-way street. The area's for Asian countries and People are Civil society structuring, Media and freedom of expression, Transparency and Anti-corruption, rule of Law human rights, conflict resolution, Women's issues and negative impact of Globalisation on the social , cultural, and political lives of people in Asia. Strengthening and defending the human rights institutions  and defenders in their respective environments.

 

Many Asian states have guarantees of human rights in their constitutions , and many have ratified international instruments on human rights.

   However, there continues to be a wide gap between rights enshrined in these documents and the abject reality that denies  people their right.
