KOREA - Asian People's Dialogue in Seoul - June 1989
This is the report from one of ACHR's earliest and most important gatherings - the first Asian People's Dialogue, held in Seoul, Korea, in June 1989. This was back in the days when such things were typed by hand and xeroxed for distribution. If you don't mind a rather crude scan of the original report, you'll a lot of history and wonders here. From the report's introduction: "Much has been spoken and written about the life situation of the urban poor in all major cities of the world - but mostly by scholars, professionals or NGOs. The Asian People's Dialogue in Seoul was a forum for the urban poor themselves to tell their own stories - in their own ways and their own words."

LAO PDR - Heritage and the Poor - Luang Prabang Nov 2011
The main image of the city of Luang Prabang is for many people associated with the relaxed atmosphere, the friendly local people and the exotic local culture, as well as the extreme cheapness compared to most other countries, even in Asia. And all this can be found with the backdrop of historic Buddhist monasteries and a sleepy old town without traffic. Unfortunately, almost all of these points are subject to change due to the impact of tourism.
