Rapidly-growing Asia is plagued by unresolved conflicts in many regions as well as social challenges caused by drastic structural transformation. In collaboration with local communities, the department continues to develop initiatives for peace building and trust building in two conflict or militarized areas in Asia, Thailand’s Deep South and Northeast India. In addition, the department supports local journalists and civil societies in their efforts for democratization based on growing concerns about the strengthening of authoritarianism and the exacerbation of intolerance against minorities in Asia.
Furthermore, the department seeks out practical solutions to address social challenges resulting from demographic shifts and structural changes, with population aging, gender, and migration as our central themes.
*Since July 2019, the Asia Social Integration Department has merged with the Asia Peace Initiatives Department.
