"I feel that there must be some convergence among nations on the idea of what the primary objective of development and progress should be - something Gross National Happiness seeks to bring about".

                    H.M. Jigme Khesar Wangchuck



Academic Session
The Academic Session, Monday 26 November 2007, provides a platform for academic exchanges and the exploration of frameworks for cooperative research. The Academic Session at Chulalongkorn University is hosted by Assoc. Professor Surichai Wun'gaeo, Director of the Social Research Institute (photo).

The Academic Session, in Chulalongkorn University, 26 November 2007, will start with a plenary welcome and introductory address.

Gross National Happiness is appreciated as a concept inducing global convergence of well-being research and policy development. This research may challenge existing paradigms.
