  • Promote the values and principles stated in the preamble of APHR's Charter, namely that:
    • Human rights concerns transcend national interests;
    • Human rights are central to and indivisible from ASEAN's economic and political aspirations;
    • All Southeast Asian nations have a role to play in resolving human rights concerns in the region;

  • Refrain from promoting, encouraging or taking actions that undermine international human rights norms and standards and/or undermine the image and reputation of APHR;
  • Not engage in hate speech, support for violence, discriminatory practices, or any actions that undermine or violate the human rights of others;
