Human rights are among problems that have received inadequate attention from the Government. Abuses had spread into economic and social aspects of life.
The Faculty of Law, Thammasat University, The Central Institute for Legal Aid, The Committee for Coordinating Human Rights Organizations and Matichon Newspaper with the support from Terre Des Hommes, The House Representative and especially the ICJ took the initiative to organize a seminar of people providing legal aid services, academics, lawyers and members of Parliament at the National Assembly on 21-23 September 1987 to discuss the ways and means to solve these problems.
It was also a good occasion for lawmakers to learn about the different aspects of human rights problems in order to find a way of encouraging their protection by Parliament in future.
