Abstract

In the last decade, ASEAN has made substantial steps towards adopting human rights, by creating the ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR) in 2009 and adopting the ASEAN Human Rights Declaration in 2012. However, these developments do not lead to the establishment of an ASEAN Human Rights Mechanism. The article aims to investigate the deadlock in ASEAN by examining to what extent that relates to institutional challenges i. e. legal and political structures consist of existing norms, persistent discourses pertaining to human rights, at regional and national levels.
