FIHRM-AP Annual Reception for Taiwan Members
FIHRM-AP held the annual reception for Taiwan members at the National Human Rights Museum on April 9th. The operation of FIHRM-AP and the current status of members were explained at the reception. The co-learning community and the following webinars regarding the human rights of migrant workers and immigrants in 2020 were also reviewed. FIHRM-AP also shared the results of two human rights resource inventory research in the Asia-Pacific region.
The distinguished guests to the reception included the Asia-Pacific Section of the Cultural Exchange Department of the Ministry of Culture, FIIHRM-AP advisory committees and members, partners of the 2020 co-learning program, and the potential 2021 climate change and human rights co-learning program partners. More than forty representatives participated in the event and interacted with enthusiasm.
As an international human rights platform, FIHRM-AP hopes to gather human rights museums, museum professionals, human rights organizations and workers, and the general public in the Asia-Pacific region to promote the value of human rights through cultural routes based on the historical experience of Taiwan’s human rights struggle.
FIHRM-AP expanded the theme regarding the human rights of immigrants and along with participants of last year's co-learning community to develop the “AYO-AYO! Migration and Human Rights” exhibition. FIHRM-AP will establish a new co-learning community with the theme of "Climate Change and Human Rights" this year. Besides, there will be an international forum regarding the human rights of immigrants, in collaboration with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience (ICSC) in August. FIHRM-AP will also gradually open dialogues with international members through online format.
FIHRM-AP actively connects members who are keenly concerned about human rights issues and are willing to work together. We look forward to working with members in the future to advocate and work together for human rights.
