This human rights report on Asia focuses on three case studies that have trans-boundary consequences for the respect and development of human rights and international humanitarian law on the continent. It examines the ongoing conflict and refugee crisis in Myanmar and neighbouring Bangladesh. It looks at the current nuclear crisis on the Korean Peninsula. Finally, it focuses on the practice and standards of development finance of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)–the latest development bank in Asia. Each of these cases illustrate existing patterns within the realm of human rights protection at the Asian and global level. They have a few elements in common that one must take into account in each of the current and future debates concerning human rights protection in Asia as well as world-wide.
