12th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights

Addressing the complex relationship between human rights and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), this publication contains the proceedings of the 12th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights (27-29 June 2012, Republic of Korea) which was on the topic ‘Human Rights and Information and Communication Technology’. The book discusses the fundamental rights and freedoms pertinent to ICTs (such as freedom of expression, right to information, right to privacy) as well as the rights and responsibilities of users and public institutions and the role of digital education and capacity-building for the appropriate use of new technology and media.

The aim of the Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights series is to promote mutual understanding and co-operation between Europe and Asia in the area of political dialogue, particularly on human rights issues. The 12th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights was organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation, Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs. It was hosted by the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Human Rights Commission of Korea.
