The Australian section of the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) supports a wide range of humanitarian projects and partners working in Southeast Asia, as well as reports on human rights issues in Australia itself. The ISHR headquarters in Germany also works closely with partners in Pakistan on issues related to the persecution of religious minorities, and also focuses on human rights violations in East Asia, especially in the People’s Republic of China and the Democratic Republic of North Korea, as well as in Vietnam. Another current issue has focused on the persecution of the Muslim Rohingya minority in Myanmar.
