Series 1, Number 3 (Winter 1995): International Human Rights and Asian Commitment

In collaboration with the Japan Institute of International Affairs in Tokyo and the Faculty of Law at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, the Carnegie Council held a workshop in Hakone, Japan on June 24–26, 1995 to analyze the realities within countries in Asia that give rise to competing conceptions of human rights and to improve understanding of rights in the region, while reducing confrontation. The first article in this volume draws upon discussion from that workshop, followed by articles from Xin Chunying of China and Jaran Cosananund of Thailand who discuss the evolution of the human rights discourse in their respective societies.
