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.
