Asia and the Pacific Regional Network
The Asia and the Pacific Regional Network brings together historic sites, museums and memory initiatives to promote equitable, inclusive, and secular societies that respect difference and diversity, ensure access to human rights and justice, and contribute to strengthening the prevention of hatred and violent conflict to promote human dignity.
Through workshops and joint projects, Asian and Pacific Sites of Conscience open dialogue on some of the most pressing human rights and social justice issues and inspire communities to become actively engaged in addressing these.
For more information, or to become involved, please contact Silvia Fernández, Global Networks Program Director.
