2007 was a year of significant upheaval in the Asian region, with one crisis following fast on the coat-tails of the last. These included the crack-down on peaceful protests in Burma, the battle for the independence of the judiciary and the resulting State of Emergency and political turmoil in Pakistan, and the stark rise in disappearances and conflict-related violence in Sri Lanka. While these situations have garnered a certain degree of interest around the world, other country situations have been overlooked, for example the mass arrests and State of Emergency in Bangladesh, or the ongoing problem of impunity and increasing lawlessness that risks presaging a return to conflict in Nepal, to name but two. Chronic human rights problems, such as those stemming from the caste system in South Asia, notably India, as well as poverty and the dysfunctional institutions of the rule of law that are at the root of most human rights violations across the nations of Asia are also included in this report.
This publication features a collection of reports on the human rights situations in eleven Asian States, which together comprise the Asian Human Rights Commission's annual human rights report for 2007. The countries in focus this year are: Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Each report is prepared by the organisation's relevant country desk and does not purport to be exhaustive or a complete overview of the entire range of human rights issues that are present in the country, but rather presents the issues of concern and experiences that the organisation encountered during its work in 2007.
