Welcome to CMU-SPP
The Chiang Mai University School of Public Policy is the first public policy school established in Thailand. The school is made up of three centers, including Unit for Social and Environmental Research and Excellence Center in Urban Study and Public Policy. Aside from conducting high-quality research and providing consultations to governments, the school also offers graduate programs in public policy for academically ambitious students from within the region and beyond.
At the Chiang Mai University School of Public Policy, we conduct research on public policy issues critical to sustainability. Our approach is multi-scale, pluralistic and inter-disciplinary. Ultimately, our interest is in influencing practices and outcomes, and so we are also interested in research that engages directly with affected stakeholders and responsible decision-makers, goals that require attention to deliberative processes and collaboration.
