78-page PDF resource which explores the use of CEDAW and ICESCR, as well as other policy instruments such as the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, which can be used to strengthen the accountability of states and responsibility of non-state actors on women’s human rights. The handbook documents and collates several tools and resources developed by various experts, analysts and activists in the fields of human rights, law and economics, to strengthen our analysis of the impact of regional economic integration on women’s daily lives and our rights. It is intended to help women’s groups explore the rights context under the ASEAN regional integration to ensure we can strategise and advocate for women’s economic social and cultural rights, and women’s access to justice in this evolving political economy.
