Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
liebe Südostasieninteressierte,

bereits seit einigen Jahren begleitet das Regionalbüro der Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung in Bangkok die politischen Entwicklungen Südostasiens. Seit 2016 etablieren wir zudem Partnerschaften im gesamten ASEAN-Raum und unterstützen konkrete Projektaktivtäten in den Bereichen Demokratie und Ökologie (www.th.boell.org).

Zu unserer Politikbeobachtung gehört eine monatliche Presseübersicht regionaler und internationaler Printmedien die neben aktuellen politischen Entwicklungen, Debatten in Südostasien aus den Bereichen Menschenrechte, Migration, Demokratie, Digital Rights und Meinungsfreiheit zusammenfasst. Ein besonderer Fokus liegt darüber hinaus auf energie- und klimapolitischen Berichterstattungen, sowie den gesellschafts- und umweltpolitischen Auswirkungen infrastruktureller Großprojekte.
