Human Rights Disclosure in ASEAN
Who’s behind it? – ASEAN CSR Network, the Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies, Mahidol University and Article 30 (2019)
How can it help? – This collaborative study between ASEAN CSR Network, the Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies, Mahidol University and Article 30 seeks to establish a baseline understanding of human rights disclosure in the ASEAN region by probing material made available by the top 50 publicly listed companies in the stock exchanges of Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand.
By identifying disclosure gaps, offering good examples from the region and highlighting points of leverage such as National Action Plans (NAPs) and stock exchange disclosure regulations, the study aims to inform efforts to align with the UNGPs and prepare ASEAN governments and companies for the possibility of a legally-binding treaty.
