TS4 Webinar | Living in Interesting Times: Patterns and Problems in Contemporary Thai Politics
Join Professor Hicken (University of Michigan) to delve into some of the complex issues impacting contemporary Thai politics.

The last quarter century has been politically tumultuous, even by Thai historical standards. In this talk Professor Hicken will discuss the evolution (and de-evolution) of political attitudes, behaviors, and institutions in Thailand. The talk will highlight the changes he observed (both promising and worrisome), as well as some surprising continuities.
