About the Network
The Asia and the Pacific Regional Network brings together sites remembering both conflict and peace to promote ethnic and religious pluralism and democracy, especially among young people. Asian Sites of Conscience open dialogue on human rights and democracy and inspire young people to become actively engaged in promoting those values.
The members of the Asia and the Pacific Sites of Conscience Network come from nations including Cambodia, Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka and remember different histories, from conflict to totalitarian regimes to environmental disasters.
As a result of the regional planning process in late 2020, the Asia and the Pacific Sites of Conscience Network committed to work towards
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.
