Below is the preliminary list of online discussions that will be held on this forum within the next 3 months. I am open to suggestions as to other human rights-related topics that some -- or all -- of you might be interested in.
1. Differences between the approach to rights in the Code of Hammurabi and Magna Carta
2. Torture and inhuman and degrading treatment and punishment in Police Detention in Southeast Asia (SEA): Case of alleged torture of Mr Metta Saiphan and Mr Anucha Siripornna Ratchasima
3. Universality of human rights; cultural deference and internationalization of human rights: Case of Lina Joy in Malaysia (Joy v Majlis Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan)
