    Yingluck Working For Peace in Pattani

    Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is in Pattani, a province torn by years of militant violence. Yingluck has made attempts at all levels to secure peace and community development though participation in dialogues with the government, local authorities and civil society.

    Pattani has seen troubled times where civilians, teachers and government representatives are killed and injured by loosely-formed militants. Violence was almost at the height during the government of Abhisit Vejjajiva.

    Yingluck believes in the empowerment of women in participation, especially in the strengthening of communities and individuals made vulnerable due to violence. With her national commitment and campaigns in eradicating violence against women and children, the Prime Minister is planning for more initiatives to meet women in order to find mutual causes, and build peace and prosperity for the Thai people.
