    Manny Mogato, a journalist with Reuters in the Philippines and this year's winner of the McLuhan Fellowship, will be presenting on the spread of fake news in the Philippines and how this undermines the news media's role. His discussion comes at a time when human rights and other fundamental freedoms in the Philippines are under the spotlight, and will explore what journalists should do to respond to the threats of fake news and the lack of accountability by purveyors of false information.

    The ASEAN Dialogues: A Student-Focused Discussion

    Since its founding in 1967, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has made some impressive achievements: it has doubled its membership from five countries to 10, now comprising a combined population of 625 million people; and, it has reached a level of cohesion and integration that is impressive in light of the economic, religious, cultural, and political diversity among its members.

    As the association celebrates its 50th anniversary, now is a good time to take stock of the important role it is playing in the region’s politics, economics, and security. It is also a good time to look ahead to challenges ASEAN is facing at the dawn of its next 50 years.

    To that end, the Asia Pacific Youth Council (APYC), an initiative of the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada, is organizing a three-part event series called “The ASEAN Dialogues.” The first dialogue, to be held on November 9, 2017, will focus on the following questions:

    1. What challenges is ASEAN facing, both internally and externally?
    2. What strengths does ASEAN have to deal with these challenges? What are its current shortcomings in dealing with these challenges?
    3. What should Canada – especially Canadian youth – be doing to make itself better informed and relevant to ASEAN’s next phase?

    The first dialogue will kick off with Dr. Paul Evans of UBC, an expert on ASEAN and Asian international relations; the Hon. Neil Frank Ferrer, current Philippine Consul General from the Philippines Consulate in Vancouver; and, Mr. Gordon Longmuir, a retired Canadian diplomat who served in multiple Asian countries. They will provide background and context to frame the discussion. (The Philippines has the ASEAN Chair in 2017). This will be followed by a discussion among participants.

    Students and young professionals are especially encouraged to attend.

    Coordinating Performance in International Trade and Human Rights

    The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada is co-hosting with the University of British Columbia (UBC) a roundtable to generate a discussion about policy implications of recent research results from UBC’s Asia Pacific Dispute Resolution (APDR) Program.

    This is part of a series of research and knowledge mobilization activities, which includes a series of international consultations to share and receive feedback on the research findings and analysis. These consultations will provide opportunities to discuss results from UBC's seven-year policy research program on co-ordination of international treaty compliance in trade and human rights, and resulting policy implications. 

    Supported by the Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the APDR project has brought together researchers from Canada, Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Australia, and Israel to examine relationships between international trade policy and human rights performance.

    Following summary presentations on research results linking trade policy with human rights themes of development; poverty/inequality; health rights; labour relations; and, government accountability, participants will discuss policy implications and responses.
