This research explains and analyzes the role of the AICHR as an ASEAN Human Rights
Institution in its engagement in the Rohingya case in Myanmar for the period 2012-2016.
The purpose of this research is to explain the causes of human rights violations against
Rohingya ethnicities, the involvement of the AICHR in that case and the obstacles faced
by AICHR in their involvement. This research uses qualitative research methods to
provide answers by describing the facts related to Rohingya case and the AICHR’s
efforts to get involved in the case. The frame of mind used in this study is the paradigm
of Institutional Liberalism, concept of International Organization, and concept of
International Regime.   
Researcher found that the involvement of AICHR in the Rohingya case was limited to
being used as a forum or meeting place for its member countries to discuss and gather
information regarding the case. This is due to the presence of internal AICHR factors
including limited authority or mandate, lack of independence of members and an
inefficient and effective consensus system. Meanwhile, external factors originated from
the application of the ideology of socialism by Myanmar which caused this country to
become closed so that AICHR had difficulty in obtaining and collecting information
related to the Rohingya case.
