Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2007
Working Group on Justice for Peace
This description of Angkhana Neelapaichit's work was prepared when Angkhana Neelapaichit was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2007.
Angkhana Neelapaichit aims to end torture, arbitrary detention, forced disappearance and impunity in Thailand, where an effective law addressing these issues does not yet exist. In 2006 she founded Working Group on Justice for Peace (WGJP) to both respond to individual incidents of forced disappearance and state brutality, and to push for systematic reforms and government accountability. WGJP is involved in writing new constitutional articles, defending court cases, communicating with government officials, and forging alliances with other human rights organizations.
