Understanding the human values that motivate sentiment towards an idea can help to characterize the basis for that sentiment, and this work is a first step toward applying that approach to positions on controversial events reported in the news..

Usually such a rule is human-made and tends to be subjective. The present study attempts to build coding rules automatically from the ISO~26000 document and compares the results with those obtained by creating the coding rules manually..

16. Transformation of concepts on civil society and human rights in Southeast Asia: cases of civil society and network NGOs in ASEAN
This paper focuses on the dynamics of civil society that the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) recently has activated at the regional level by examining regional-level civil society organizations and network NGOs, such as LAWASIA and FORUM-ASIA. It also uncovers how the ASEAN has established, maintained and changed the concepts of civil society and human rights. In addition, the paper investigates the relationships between regionalism and the institutionalisation of the human rights mechanism. Discourses on civil society and human rights in ASEAN have been associated closely with political discourses, including regionalism and communitarianism ; and the normative discourses in Asian civil society have unfolded, more or less, with the acceptance of these tides. While examining the human rights discourses of civil society organisations and network NGOs, and focusing on special and unique features of human rights discourses in Southeast Asia, the paper explores the dynamics of Asian civil society and human rights that might differ from Western NGOs' practices..
