Building on AIPG's previous experience in this area, the Atrocity Prevention during a Migration Crisis - Thailand program collaborates with local expert partners in Thailand to offer training and technical assistance to civil society organizations (CSOs) and State partners, enhancing their capacity to prevent identity-based violence towards migrant populations in Thailand.
The two core pillars of this program are training and technical assistance. In terms of training, the program provides both virtual and in-person sessions to CSOs and government officials in relevant positions, establishing a baseline understanding of atrocity prevention concepts and a deeper comprehension of the unique risks faced by those in migration. The technical assistance component of the program works with local experts to conduct comprehensive studies that illustrate how the risks facing migrants manifest in day-to-day practice and identify potential recommendations for addressing those risks.
Since its launch in 2021, the program has expanded its reach, strengthening the capacity of additional government and civil society experts. They continuously contribute to the program, identifying and advancing recommendations for mitigating risks and improving protection.
