Governance Events


Project Period:
22 Feb 2003 - 23 Feb 2003
Bangkok (Thailand)

The 5th ASEM Informal Seminar on Human Rights, `Human Rights and Economic Relations Work Group II – Foreign Direct Investment,’ from 22nd-23rd February, 2003 in Bangkok, Thailand was co-organised with the Centre for European Studies, Chulalongkorn University.

Following the first workshop held in Osaka, Japan, this second working group gathered 20 high-level participants from multinational companies, trade unions and the academia. Profvitit Muntarbhom, from Chulalongkorn, was the main rapporteur for this meeting.

As the topic was on the consequences of foreign direct investment on human rights, the participants identified the current trends and best practices in Asia and Europe; its impact and constraints on the developing countries; and attained a better understanding of the respective roles undertaken by the different actors.
