Asia Peace Initiatives Department
Fast-growing Asia is plagued by conflicts in various areas where people have suffered from violence for many years. The SPF has been committed to building peace in Thailand's Deep South, enhancing the capabilities of local civil society and developing an environment conducive to peace dialogue. Since last year, the SPF has also started a program in Northeast India, supporting the process of compiling policy recommendations for sustainable development by local intellectuals as well as launching initiatives to disseminate constructive information about the region. Furthermore, we assist in the training of journalists, with the purpose of supporting democratization in Asia.
