Political Turmoil in Thailand

In September of this year, Thailand’s Constitutional Court ruled that the country’s prime minister, Prayuth Chan-ocha, can remain in office despite the end of his eight-year term. In this episode, we discuss Thailand’s move toward authoritarianism, the role of the monarchy and other institutions in the country’s political network, and the recent protest movements which have arisen within the country. In order to explain the political situation in Thailand, joining me today is Dr. Pavin Chachavalpongpun, Editor in Chief of the Kyoto Review of Southeast Asia.
