Series 1, Number 1 (Spring 1994): Human Rights in the Post-Cold War Era

On December 2, 1993, over thirty academic, NGO, and government human rights specialists from the United States, Japan, Korea, China, the Philippines, and Burma gathered at Merrill House, the Carnegie Council's headquarters in New York, for a one-day seminar to consider the human rights environment in Asia and the moral obligations and policy options for donor countries, namely the U.S., Japan, and the new regional economic aid donor, South Korea. This volume provides a summary report of the issues raised by the seminar, including methods to improve dialogue and to build institutional capacity in target countries, as well as strategies the international community could adopt for promoting human rights.
