The 19th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights will take place on 4-6 November 2019 in Tromso, Norway, on the theme of “Human Rights Education”.


The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) is an intergovernmental forum for dialogue and cooperation established in 1996 to deepen relations between Asia and Europe. The organisation addresses political, economic and socio-cultural issues of common concern. The 19th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights aims to contribute towards a better mutual understanding of Human Rights Education and the role it plays in today's globalised world. 


This Seminar series is co-organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (nominated by the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs), the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs, the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs, the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Peoples Republic of China.

The host of the 19th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights will be the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Given the nature of the Seminar, participants are invited individually by the co-organisers; there is no open call for participation.

This page will be updated regularly with further information on the 19th Seminar. Please check again for more details.
