KASSID Annual Meeting 2022

Workshop on Participatory Democracy

In 2021, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung started a new scholarship program called “Konrad Adenauer Scholarship for Social and Innovative Development" or KASSID. On 10-11 June 2022, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung in Thailand organized an Annual Meeting for KASSID scholars at the Avani Sukhumvit Hotel, Bangkok. Since the start of the scholarship program last year, this was the first time that all of the KASSID scholars met each other in person, shared their ideas and expertise, and grew their connections. The event started off with a dinner talk and an ice-breaking activity which required the students to guess words related to global and local trends, international cooperation, social justice, and multiculturalism. The activity brought so much fun to the scholars and further resulted in casual discussions thereafter.

Social Inclusion

Human Security of Vulnerable Persons – Risks and Hidden Potential

Groups of the elderly, disable, poor, homeless, parolees/released prisoners, young mothers, and migrant workers are considered the most vulnerable population. Their vulnerability arises from many factors such as social stigma, a lack of training and opportunities in employment, career advancement, and income-generating activities; as well as a lack of information and knowledge exchange. More importantly, these groups of people tend to do not have enough power and abilities to cope with the hardships when they occur.

The Role of Parliaments in Participatory Democracies: Experiences from Thailand

Second Session of the Series: Democratic Trends in ASEAN

Strong parliaments are the cornerstone of participatory democracies and democratic pluralism. Parliamentarians represent the people, pass laws and hold governments accountable. As such, they are the connections between executive and citizens. Whether a national parliament can provide accountability and oversight highly depends on a number of factors, including the capabilities of parliamentarians and their staff, political procedures and points of orders, party structures and the parliament’s administration processes. Parliaments are hence an important contact point for the European Union (EU) and other international development actors to strengthen the fundament of democracy on the ground.
