‘South Asia State of Minorities Report 2016:  Mapping the Terrain’, seeks
to systematically document and track the condition of South Asia’s
minorities and their access to rights as citizens, in order to build a body
of evidence, and spur public debate on the subject, in the region. The
report, jointly authored by a group of research and advocacy groups from
across South Asia – calling themselves The South Asia Collective - aspires
to contribute to advocacy for establishing South Asia-wide minority rights
standards, instruments and mechanisms, and also galvanise the region's
civil society, around minority rights protection and promotion, in order to
encourage state parties to adopt and enforce those instruments.
