A talk given as part of the Southeast Asia Seminar Series

The session will be focussing on Thai politics following the 2006 coup and how the protesters, the care taking government, the courts and military establishment and different classes in Thai society are currently dealing with the political struggles while relying on some form of legal arguments. The current political battle is not fought by mere physical power like in the past, but rather some form of legitimacy power claimed by all sides, each interpreting the constitution differently. As the struggles push closer to the critical point, the dynamic of power politics in an emerging Democracy such as Thailand is being illustrated clearer than before.
