Know More No More Violence
A community platform for violence prevention in Thailand
This platform is a hub that contains the most complete and all-round resources for knowledge, including research and advocacy, guidance and toolkits, and policy development to prevent violence from occurring and escalating to extremism.
Know More No More Violence seeks to build a community of knowledge that deepens our understanding of the phenomenon of violence in Thailand and its prevention. We do so by collaborating with our partner organisations in research initiatives, and engaging with the public at large through the publication of easy-to-access stories based on the research. In addition, our work focuses on policy transformation drawing on case-based expertise and our partnership with policymakers.
Preventing Violent Extremism
There is still a limited understanding of the complex political, social and economic factors that influence processes of radicalization and deradicalization in Asia. In the last few years, the nature of violent extremism has also undergone a change towards transnationalism and, despite its often localized context in existing conflicts, extremism has attracted international actors. Hate groups and extremist organisations have demonstrated a particular strength in the dissemination of their narratives through the internet.
UNDP employs an inclusive, human rights-based approach to prevent and mitigate violent extremism that is specific to the Asian context. By engaging with civil society, governments and businesses at the national and regional level, UNDP is challenging traditional security approaches by implementing practical programmes that address the root causes of violent extremism.
In Thailand, UNDP has supported national efforts to prevent violent extremism through an evidence-based and multi-stakeholder approach. In collaboration with the Thai government, civil society organisations, the private sector, and the Thai public, UNDP provides policy support, knowledge exchange, and programme delivery at both national and local levels in an acceleration of the country’s achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Know More No More Violence is a project by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with the Monitoring Centre on Organised Violence Events (MOVE), and the Office of the National Security Council (NSC), with support from the European Union (EU)
Our Partners
UNDP is the lead development agency of the United Nations, working to support countries’ work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. UNDP has more than 50 years of experience leading the UN’s development work, providing knowledge, practical expertise, and a legacy of trust.

UNDP works in nearly 170 countries and territories, helping to eradicate poverty, and to do that in a way which also reduces inequality and exclusion, and avoids wrecking the ecosystems on which life depends.

UNDP is working with the Royal Thai government, civil society, national partners and the Thai public to help find solutions to persistent development challenges. We continue to work to provide technical expertise, such as improved data quality and collection, international expertise on environmental issues like climate change finance and adaptation.

UNDP's priority in a middle-income country like Thailand is to work within outlined agreements like the United Nations Partnership Agreement Framework (UNPAF) signed on 27 July 2017. We continue to provide strong policy advice and advocacy on normative UN issues such as gender equality, social and economic inequality, human rights, and rule of law.
The European Union (EU) is an economic and political union of 27 Member States. Together, they have built a zone of stability, democracy and sustainable development while maintaining cultural diversity, tolerance and individual freedom.
Monitoring Centre on Organised Violence Events (MOVE)
Affiliated with the Institute of Asian Studies, Chulalongkorn University, the Monitoring Centre on Organised Violence Events (MOVE) is a data-driven research hub. We collect, analyse and publicise disaggregated data on eight types of organised violence in Thailand that serve as a basis for further studies and policy analyses regarding trends of violent extremism and its prevention in Thailand.
The National Security Council (NSC) is responsible for national security policy and plan, giving advice and opinions on national and specific security strategies, plans and measures for the prevention or mitigation of national security problems; assessing and analyzing the overall strategic situations which pose a threat to the national security as well as to regulate and monitor the implementation of national security policy and plan to protect national interest, prevent and resolve security issues holistically.

The NSC is chaired by the Prime Minister, and supported by the designated Deputy Prime Minister as the deputy chairperson. Member of the council consists of Ministers of Defense, Finance, Foreign Affairs, Transport, Information and Communication Technology, Interior, and Justice and the chief-of-staff of the Royal Thai Armed Forces as member. The NSC Secretary General act as member and secretary of the council.
