Can Thailand ever be a democracy?

6 Views

When you look at a country that's had 12 coups since 1932, along with another seven attempted ones, well, there's clearly something of a love-hate relationship with democracy.
And so it is in Thailand, which had an election in March, the first since the 2014 coup, and now has a newly-confirmed Prime Minister.
Only this Prime Minister was the same army general who led that coup, leading to a whole lot of questions about the true state of democracy in Thailand.
On Inside Story, an in-depth discussion on the relationship between state, military, monarchy, and the people, and why that mixture proves so unstable, time and time again.

Presenter: Kamahl Santamaria

Guests
Michael Montesano, coordinator for the Thailand Studies Programme at the Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore.
Sunai Phasuk, senior researcher for Asia at Human Rights Watch, and a former adviser to the Thai Senate.
