Wasser in Südostasien

Eine Region vor neuen Herausforderungen

Das Thema Wasser ist im asiatischen Raum immer präsent.

Update on the Rule of Law for Human Rights in ASEAN: A Path to Integration

As an update to the first regional base-line study on the rule of law in ASEAN which was published in 2011, this study analyses legislative and substantive changes that have taken place in the ten ASEAN member states since 2011, and whether these changes support or detract from ASEAN's vision of becoming a "rules-based" community. It also considers how the process of ASEAN integration has influenced activity towards the creation of stronger legal institutions within the ASEAN Member States.

Weather disasters are abundant and are caused not only by climatic change due to environmental pollution, but also by a lack of proper land management.

Jahrestag des Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs teil. Beide Eingeladenen wurden durch Sondergesandte vertreten. Obwohl es also nicht zu einer innerkoreanischen Annäherung auf europäischem Boden gekommen ist, gibt es Indizien, die dafür sprechen, dass stattdessen Russland über die koreanische Halbinsel Einfluss auf die demokratischen Mächte des Westens nehmen könnte.

Development of Cambodian Administrative Law

In Cambodia significant laws have been developed since 1993 but some building stones of a strong building called ‘rule of law’ are still missing. Whereas comprehensive legislation has been adopted in the fields of civil law and criminal law in recent years important aspects of administrative law are still not covered by modern legislation.
