KASSID Winter Meeting 2022: International Cooperation Toward Global Challenges

Non-Violent Communication and Capacity Building for Preparedness in challenging contexts

On 6-7 December 2022, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Thailand organized the “KASSID Winter Meeting 2022: International Cooperation Toward Global Challenges” for its KASSID scholars from batch 1 and 2 at the Jasmine City Hotel in Bangkok. The meeting started with an ice-breaking activity followed by educational updates and progress in social work of each scholar. Considering global trends such as repression in democracy in many countries, and geopolitical tensions affecting our lives in all dimensions directly and indirectly, the KAS invited Assoc. Dr. Jittipat Poonkham from Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University to give a lecture on international relations and cooperation. The lecture provided the scholars with an overview of the global situation, background of challenges, including different policies, values, and norms of the great powers and other organizations. After the lecture, the KASSID scholars were assigned to do three consecutive workshops to brainstorm and address issues at regional and global level. The speaker also asked them to prioritize those challenges and propose policies to MPs or policy makers to tackle such complications. From this session, the scholars learned that problems at the regional and global level are interconnected with different layers and complexity. Therefore, regional and international cooperation is needed to solve or mitigate the challenges. The scholars addressed following issues as their top priorities: human rights, democracy, equality, decentralization, sustainable social welfare, effective management of public tax, climate change mitigation, including access to free and high quality education for all.
