These leaders represent four different political parties in Thailand, including the Peua Thai Party, the Democrat Party, and non-partisan observers, including a member of Thailand’s Election Commission.
Participants will learn how American political parties engage with the electorate and how they develop outreach strategies. Cultural Vistas designed and will administer the program, with staff traveling with the group for its duration.
The 10 days of programming began in Washington, D.C. and will continue to Manchester, New Hampshire, Concord, New Hampshire, and Raleigh, North Carolina. Leaders will engage with a variety of organizations and institutions, including think tanks, U.S. government agencies, and local campaign offices.
