The AHRC held its advanced human rights study programme from October 9-14, 2005 in Hong Kong, at which participants from 10 nationalities participated. To mark this occasion, the AHRC is launching a series of discussions aimed at drafting an Asian Charter on Rule of Law. With a view to drafting an Asian Charter on the Rule of Law, the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) is launching a series of discussions on the relationship between the rule of law and the implementation of human rights. Wide consultations are planned to be held before writing and approving a final draft of this charter. This work is a follow up to the Asian Human Rights Charter-A Peoples’ Charter, declared in Kwangju, South Korea, in May 1998.
