Democracy in Thailand after the Military
In this talk at the Blavatnik School of Government, the leader of the Democrat Party of Thailand and former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva (2008-2011) will discuss Thailand’s role in the Asean Economic Community (AEC), as well as the AEC’s position as a force on the global stage. The AEC has enormous diversity and is one of the fastest-growing consumer markets in the world, but it also has to juggle geopolitical challenges.
Mr Abhisit will explore with audience members the great challenges and opportunities for a democratic Thailand and its role within the AEC. Can the AEC realise its full potential, both political and economic? Can the AEC emerge as a force on the global stage? What is Thailand's roadmap leading up to the elections?
What is the roadmap ahead of elections?
What is Thailand's position in AEC?
Opportunities, challenges under shifting landscape
