  • About Us

    The Regional EU-ASEAN Dialogue Instrument Human Rights Facility (READI HRF) office is a two-year initiative of the European Union to support the ASEAN regional integration agenda. It supports the policy development process in non-trade-related areas by supporting the ASEAN Community blue prints and drawing on European experiences and know-how.

    From August 2015 to August 2017, the READI HRF office supports the policy dialogues that are demand-driven by EU and ASEAN policymakers, in particular the four ASEAN human rights bodies and committees—our ‘beneficiaries’. They are:

    – The ASEAN Intergovernmental Commission on Human Rights (AICHR)
    – The ASEAN Commission on the Promotion and the Protection of the Rights of Women and Children (ACWC)
    – The ASEAN Committee on Migrant Workers (ACW)
    – The ASEAN Committee on Women (ACMW).

    Demands for the services of the READI HRF office are expressed in the form of concept notes that can come from either the European Union or ASEAN through the relevant desk officers at the ASEAN Secretariat. In this regard, the relevant units are the Social Welfare, Women, Labour and Migrant Workers Division, the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly, the ASEAN Foundation, the ASEAN Human Rights Body and other ASEAN Associated Entities Division at the ASEAN Secretariat.

    The READI HRF office is jointly managed by the European Union and ASEAN. In practice, the office is answerable to the European Union Delegation and the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta. The current office comprises a technical assistance consortium led by Brussels-based Transtec and local managerial support.
