Highlights from previous issues

Implementing Human Rights in ASEAN Countries: "Promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep" by Li-ann Thio
Until relatively recently, human rights have not played a prominent role in the deliberations of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Professor Li-ann Thio of the National University of Singapore asserts that this is changing at a rapid pace, although not in such a way as to justify the creation of a full-fledged Asian human rights regime. In this Article, she explores and critiques the cultural, institutional, and economic factors widely cited as obstacles to the promotion of human rights in the region, and argues ultimately for a subregional human rights system that can take advantage of ASEAN's existing political infrastructure.

Mission Statement

The Yale Human Rights & Development Law Journal aims to explore the tension and congruence between human rights and development. There is much discussion and debate over what these concepts mean and how they interrelate. These issues demand holistic, cross-cutting analysis, and so the Journal encourages writings that draw upon various academic disciplines, such as political science, public policy, economics, health and sociology.

We feature pieces representing the broadest possible range of perspectives. We welcome pieces that focus on different fields within the law, such as constitutional law, economic regulation, international law, and institutional reform, as well as pieces dealing with issues that arise in national (including U.S.), regional, and international contexts, in both the "industrialized" and the "developing" world.
