Welcome to the Thailand Public Policy Network (TPPN)! We are the platform for policy scholars, researchers and practitioners with different backgrounds to share and learn about public policy in Thailand in various dimensions. Our network connects to the networks from other countries, the Asian-Pacific Public Policy Network (AP-PPN), Critical Policy Studies Network (CPSN) and the International Public Policy Association (IPPA), so we are not alone in the journey.

So far, we have initiated a lot of constructive events. We hosted the 1st Asia-Pacific Public Policy Network Conference in mid-2017. We initiated the 1st symposium on “Policy analysis in Thailand” in late 2019. Then, in early 2020, the TPPN, in collaboration with the Journal of Critical Policy Studies, organised the 1st “Winter School on Public Policy” in the country under the topic “Critical Policy Perspectives in Asia”. We continued our conversation through the 2nd symposium on “Policy analysis in Thailand” in the same period. Also, we expanded the network by engaging young policy scholars in the seminar on “Policy studies in different perspectives” in early 2021. Our recent event was a policy dialogue among young policy scholars on “Public Policy for Just Sustainable Futures” which was organised in September 2022.
