AFSC's Asia regional office supports dialogue on contentious issues affecting the region and the world. We also coordinate emergency humanitarian response in the region.
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea)
AFSC has a long history of involvement on the Korean peninsula dating back to 1953. The first AFSC delegation to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea) was in 1980. Today, our current program works with farmers in North Korea to increase yields on cooperative farms through testing new innovations.
Indonesia: Strengthening Diversity Through Narrative Change
In Indonesia, AFSC collaborates with the Indonesian Justice and Peace Foundation (YKPI) to support partners around the country engaging in narrative change campaigning to bridge conflict divides and celebrate Indonesia’s rich diversity of religion, ethnicity, gender, social class, ability, and sexual orientation.
Public Policy and Advocacy
AFSC has more than a century of experience working with communities across the globe. In our policy and advocacy work, we bring these perspectives to the U.S. capital, United Nations, and other policy bodies.
