On April 2, 2019, SPRI Global and Thammasat University in Bangkok signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on developing a set of professional capacity building courses and academic programmes on Social Policy and Social Protection. The collaboration is set up as part of the ASEAN Centre for Social Work and Social Welfare as conceived by ASEAN and the Thai government.

SPRI Global and Thammasat will collaborate with other universities in the ASEAN region to design and implement academic and professional training programmes and social protection research to be delivered in the countries of the region. After a formal signing ceremony, representatives of SPRI Global, public and private universities in Thailand and Indonesia, ministries, NGOs, UNICEF and the ILO held a first explorative meeting about the way forward towards delivering the first programmes.
