Thai Public Views on International Issues


What do Thais think about foreign policy? Understandably, this question assumes that any response would come directly or indirectly from Thai officials, policymakers, or politicians and that such answers can be readily found in various documents, public statements, news articles, etc. But what about “ordinary” Thais affected by regional and global developments and their leaders’ efforts to anticipate, manage, and react to them?

From July to November 2023, The Asia Foundation conducted a national survey in Thailand on key foreign policy and regional cooperation issues. The survey included face-to-face interviews with 1,650 adult Thai citizens living in urban districts in every region of the country. A high percentage of respondents were knowledgeable about international issues, which allowed for more advanced questions.
