The Asia Foundation has worked in Thailand since 1954. In cooperation with partners in government, civil society, academia, and the private sector, the Foundation promotes peaceful conflict resolution, encourages citizen engagement in the political process, and supports innovative programs that help to build more responsive and transparent systems of governance throughout the country. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Thai people over the recent passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Thailand’s beloved monarch, during this period of mourning.
