The Asian Human Rights Commission launched the first issue of a weekly roundup of human rights issues on October 14, 2013. Since then they produced over hundred weekly bulletins. The weekly roundup is a news programme which aims to highlight a wide variety of current human rights issues in the Asian region. Important stories of people fighting for improving human rights, both in the civil and political rights sphere as well as economic, social and cultural rights are covered in these weekly roundups and we also often meet survivors of human rights violations, who talk of their experiences. The AHRC hopes that this coverage will contribute to the conversation on human rights issues in the region and will also assist in developing greater solidarity in the struggle to achieve universal human rights.

We welcome both human rights feeds to be considered for weekly news bulletin, and your suggestions to improve our news channel.
