Summary "The purpose of this book is to provide a consolidated collection of materials to facilitate comparison of the various national human rights institutions (NHRIs) already established in the Asia-Pacific region, against a backdrop of selected international materials and with the assistance of several comparative tables. While the collection is primarily intended for teaching purposes, it should also be useful to countries considering establishing a national human rights commission or for those which have already done do, strengthening its mandate."--BOOK JACKET.
