This book is the result of the Project entitled “The Mapping and Analysis of Human Rights and Peace and Conflict Studies in Southeast Asia”. It aimed at establishing baseline data of the status of human rights, peace and conflict studies in universities and colleges in the Southeast Asian Region. The study looked into the courses and programmes on human rights, peace and conflicts being undertaken by universities and colleges in 11 Southeast Asian countries (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam). It attempted to analyze the course syllabi and curriculums that already existed in region. It is hoped that, having shared its final results already with the representatives from various governmental and non-governmental organizations, the results of this study will further serve as the foundation for advocating and policy influencing for the development of courses/curriculums on human rights and peace education in the Region.
