Title: Thailand’s Turbulent Politics: Peering Ahead

Abstract:Thailand has been transformed over recent decades by economic growth and globalization.

The political system is now adjusting to these social changes with conflicts between forces old and new.

The process is turbulent, but it is not unusual. This lecture looks in detail at the recent phase of protest,

which began in late 2013, then peers into the future. The resolution of the current conflict will be shaped

by new social changes and by Thailand’s fundamental commitment to economic growth and a role

in the region and the world.
