Présentation [en anglais] :

"The Informal Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM)1 Seminar on Human Rights series provides an arena for nonconfrontational debate on human rights issues between government officials, academics and civil society organisations of the 51 ASEM members.

The series was launched in 1997 at the initiative of the foreign ministries of France and Sweden. The Seminar series is co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (delegated by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs), the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and , the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs. The 13th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights is hosted by the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Danish Institute for Human Rights.

The 13th Seminar which will link human rights concerns to the environment and climate change debate for the first time within the ASEM framework, aims to develop recommendations to protect and strengthen human rights in relation to environment protection. The seminar will begin with an opening plenary with introductory messages and keynote speeches. The second day will be devoted to the four working groups which will focus on a) The Interaction between Sustainable Development, Environment and Human Rights’; b) Access to Information, Participatory Rights and Access to Justice; c) Actors, Institutions and Governance and; d) Climate Change and Human Rights Implications. The closing plenary will conclude with reports from the working groups."
