Human Rights in Asia

Members are involved in several initiatives on human rights in Asia.

One current collaborative research project is on Reimagining Vulnerability in the Light of COVID 19 in Sri Lanka (2021-2023). Dr Mario Gomez of the International Centre for Ethnic Studies and Melissa Crouch are collaborating on a two-year project under the DFAT Sri Lanka grant scheme on Knowledge and Linkages for an Inclusive Economy. As the international partners on the grant, Melissa Crouch will produce a report on the impact of covid-19 on rights and governance in the region, with a particular focus on Indonesia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka. Academics including Theunis Roux and Rosalind Dixon, and HDR students who are part of the Constitutionalism in the Global South Project, will contribute to a stakeholder workshop.
