      Research Topics, Overview of the research

      • Research Topics

        Thai Politics, Foreign Policy and International Relations, Comparative Politics, Politics of Myanmar and Indochinese States, Nationalism, National Security, Asian International Relations, ASEAN Integration, Policy Studies, Public and Social Policy. Currently, I am working on two projects: one is on the political developments during the regin of King Vajiralongkorn of Thailand and the other is on the US's relations with Thai monarchy.
      • Overview of the research

        TOPIC 1:
        In the first project, I will be looking at the role of King Vajiralongkorn of Thailand in politics. In the twilight years of King Bhumibol Adulyadej (1946–2016), changes to monarchic power were already set in motion. Having been at the center of political gravity, Bhumibol left a vacuum of power when he died. Vajiralongkorn, enthroned in 2016, filled the vacuum with his desire to further augment the monarchic power despite his lack of moral authority and charisma. This project focuses on Vajiralongkorn’s attempt to strengthen his position of power by employing a different method from the one used by his father, Bhumibol. The pro-monarchy institutions have readjusted their relationship with Vajiralongkorn, primarily for their own interests, hence perpetuating the changing nature of monarchic power. But at the other end of the spectrum, the young generation has reacted daringly to the growing power of Vajiralongkorn by demanding royal reforms, and in the process trespassing against the overly protected realm of the monarchy even in the face of the lèse-majesté law. The Thai monarchy has arrived at a crossroads, and yet has chosen to resist popular will and disregard calls for reforms. The future of the monarchy remains dangerously uncertain.

        TOPIC 2:

        The Relationship between Thailand and the United States: Thailand is the United States’ oldest ally in Asia. The two countries signed the Treaty of Amity and Commerce in 1836 which served as a foundation for strong bilateral ties. It is evident that the United States’ amicable relations with Siamese kings assisted greatly in strengthening the power of the throne. Bilateral relations were progressively solidified particularly during the Cold War when the two nations cooperated in their attempt to combat the threat of communism, even when Washington openly supported a series of despotic regimes in Thailand against democratic forces. King Bhumibol Adulyadej, Thailand's most powerful and revered monarch, was reinvented into an all-time US protagonist. As Bhumibol strove to maintain his royal political hegemony, the US was ready to lend its support to Bhumibol’s “network monarchy” of which Washington became a kind of member ex officio. Washington invested massively in Bhumibol throughout the Cold War. But when the Cold War was over and the Thai political landscape changed drastically, the United States was rooted to the old network of the ailing king. This study examines the ties between the United States and the authoritative institution of Thailand – the monarchy. The speaker discusses how the United States has willingly become a part of Thailand’s domestic political struggles which pitted the dominant monarchy against democratic institutions. Perceiving the monarchy as the highest institution, Washington put all of its eggs in that one basket as a way to defend its interests of power in the kingdom. Hence, when new political alternatives emerged on the Thai political scene, the United States remained reluctant to engage with them for fear that it could joepardise its intimate relations with the monarchy. Additionally, with the rise of China, a question must be asked: What must the United States do to maintain its influence over this old ally in Southeast Asia?

        Nationhood in the Cloud: Cyber Sovereignty in Thailand, United Kingdom, International academic award
        At the height of the 2020 protests, the Thai government implemen- ted vigorous online censorship to curb public criticism of the mon- archy. In doing so the government cited its obligation to safeguard Thailand’s ‘cyber sovereignty’, which is the focus of this article. I argue that this concept is constructed as a tool that can be wielded opportunistically to ensure regime security, which largely depends on the security of the throne. Notably, the Thai state’s construction of cyber sovereignty is modelled on territorial sovereignty: it has elements of territorial nationhood, insofar as cyberspace is treated as if it has a physical existence. However, this conceptualisation of cyber sovereignty is flawed: it elides the significant differences between these two forms of sovereignty, particularly regarding sovereign power and its limits. Despite its flawed nature, the Thai case is part of a wider on-going debate about cyber sovereignty, whereby some countries promote tighter Internet controls while others support a more liberal cyber regime.

        The Making of Modern Siamese-Burmese Boundaries: The Ethnographic Factor, Japan, Japan society
        This project examines the making of the modern territorial borderline between Siam (Thailand) and Myanmar (Burma). From 1868 to 1934, Britain (which colonized Burma) and Siam jointly conducted a series of surveys and negotiations to draw the borderline between the two states. This research will investigate how the ethnographic factor plays a role in defining boundary. The key question is: To which country did the people in the border region belong: Siam or Burma? Based on recently declassified archival documents, this study will uncover (1) how the British and Siamese surveyors/researchers jointly conducted the ethnographic classification (2) how the findings of ethnographic classification were used to map the border region and (3) how Britain and Siam negotiated the demarcation of the border. The research will contribute to new insights regarding the making of modern sovereign states in Southeast Asia and the world.

        The Preah Vihear Conflict: Competing Concepts on Sovereign Territory between Siam and France, Japan, Japan society
        This project is titled: “The Preah Vihear Conflict: Competing Concepts on Sovereign Territory between Siam and France”. It will examine why international territorial disputes are persistent. It looks specifically into the Thai-Cambodian territorial dispute over the ancient Hindu Temple, Preah Vihear. Relying upon the recently available archival documents, this research will reveal the discrepancy between the Thai traditional view of boundary and the French concept of modern sovereignty, which supposedly “mislocated” the Preah Vihear Temple (Note that Cambodia was then a French protectorate state). This study will bring new insights into the impact of such discrepancy on the resurgence of the territorial disputes that are widely seen in Asia.

        Critical Hurdles to Myanmar's Opening-up Process, Japan, Japan society
        This project will examine the opening up process in Myanmar, in all the political, economic and social spheres to determine whether Myanmar is democratizing or is it moving towards a new form of authoritarianism, perhaps one more consonant with other contemporary authoritarian regimes in Asia. It aims primarily to explore obstacles to Myanmar’s democratization and to investigate the impact of the opening up process on the region.
