Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The international human rights regime has in recent years seen remarkable change in relation to matters of sexuality and gender identity. Most recently, the United Nations (UN) has appointed in Independent Expert in this area; many other regional and national human rights regimes have seen similar developments. Scholarly engagement with these and related developments has used sexuality politics as a lens for international analysis, leading to innovative and interdisciplinary theoretical literatures in a critical vein, tracing how sexual norms and logics are imbricated in the exercise of international power. This paper suggests we need to extend the discussion to the question of digital governance within human rights regimes. With a regional focus on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (AWEAN), this chapter will trace a research agenda by considering the possible impact of digital governance techniques and practices on the rights of individuals and groups within sexuality and gender diverse populations.
