Human Rights Section
As a moderate and active country with regard to human rights, Thailand has strived to offer a bridge-building role among different views on human rights issues. As member of the Human Rights Council from 2010 – 2013 and its President between June 2010 – June 2011, Thailand has contributed to “reach out,” “hear out” and “help out” all countries on the basis of non-selectivity, constructive dialogue and cooperation.
At home, Thailand recognizes its human rights challenges and is committed to address them in consultation with various stakeholders including civil society. At the regional level, Thailand has played an active role in the formation of regional human rights mechanisms in Southeast Asia and will continue to make these mechanisms matter for the people. At the international level, Thailand is determined to remain a constructive force in promoting tolerance and fostering the spirit of cooperation to advance the world’s human rights agenda.
