Alice Thomas is executive director of Central Asia Institute (CAI). She served on CAI’s board of directors for two years – learning the ins and outs of CAI’s programs and doing vital work on the development and strategic planning committees – before transitioning into her current role as executive director.
Before joining CAI, Alice served as a senior policy advisor and program manager at Refugees International (RI), a non-governmental organization based out of Washington, DC. At RI, her work focused on improved assistance and protection for refugees and displaced people. In that role, she conducted over a dozen missions to poor and conflict-ridden countries to assess the protection, shelter, and education needs of affected communities. She also developed a novel program on the impacts of disasters, environmental degradation, and climate change on displacement of vulnerable populations. Prior to that, Alice was a staff attorney in the international program at Earthjustice in San Francisco, where she worked in collaboration with local civil society and law schools to seek redress for communities affected by pollution. She also held several positions at the American Bar Association, including as Deputy Director of ABA’s Asia Law Initiative where she oversaw programs in Cambodia, China, the Philippines, and Thailand, and as a legal liaison in ABA’s county office in Uzbekistan. Alice started her career in private practice with Dewey Ballantine. She holds a law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School and a B.A. in History from Princeton University.
