Support on human rights legislation and policy to Thailand’s Ministry of Justice

The Technical Assistance Partnership (TAP) initiative works collaboratively with Thailand’s Ministry of Justice’s Department of Rights and Liberties Protection and Canadian expert Carolyn Tanner, to develop a rights-based action plan to guide the Department in advancing its Human Resource policies, regulations and guidelines towards a more inclusive and welcoming workplace for all, including those from the LGBTQ+ community.

Using the Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA Plus) policy processes, the initiative will consist of three main elements: (i) surveying the current workplace context to establish a baseline, (ii) developing workplace policies and guidelines, and (iii) designing and implementing monitoring mechanisms to manage progress. The initiative also complements similar work currently underway by the UNDP to support workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the private sector. It aligns with a more significant push by the Thai Government to advocate, model, promote and support a more inclusive, diverse society where all Thais enjoy the same rights and privileges.
