This research proves that in the 40 years of ASEAN, none of the member countries free from human rights violations ~ either ordinary or gross ones. ASEAN possesses instruments, namely the ASEAN Charter, the ASEAN Community, the National Commissions and AICHR to promote and protect human rights within ASEAN. One of human rights theories used in this paper is Francis Deng's Responsibility to Protect involving four categories of human rights violation (genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity), besides theory of natural rights, the universality of human rights and of Regionalism as well. This paper examines the case of genocide in Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979) and crimes against humanity in East Timor (1999), the resolution of both cases was resolved differently. Cambodia resolved it in judicial terms (the Khmer Rouge Tribunal), while Indonesia and Timor Leste overcame it in non-judicial terms (Commision of Truth and Friendship).
