Message from the President


Due to the ongoing concerns and the unprecedented escalation and spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, and the travel bans and restrictions issued by many governments in Asia and the Pacific region, the LAWASIA Executive Committee and the Conference Organising Committee have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2nd LAWASIA Human Rights Conference 2020 in Kathmandu, Nepal with immediate effect.

We understand the inconvenience rescheduling the conference may have caused to those who have already planned their trips. It is, however, our duty to do everything we can to prevent the virus from spreading, and we wish to reassure all our attendees and support staff that health and safety is our paramount concern and priority. Our sympathies are with those directly affected during this difficult time and we will follow up with all those who were scheduled to attend the conference.

All registrations purchased will remain valid for the rescheduled dates. Registrants will be advised separately on refund policy.

Details of the new dates will be communicated shortly. The tentative new dates of the conference are 4 – 5 July 2020. In the meantime, we encourage conference attendees to visit the conference website for special announcements and further details.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We look forward to your continued support and to meeting you at the rescheduled conference.

Best Regards

Chunghwan Choi
LAWASIA President
