Underreported: Thailand’s Turmoil

On this week’s Underreported, Duncan McCargo, a leading scholar of Thai politics, discusses his fieldwork about the conflict in southern Thailand.

Since 2004, more than 4,200 people have been killed in the region in fighting between the Thai government and rebels in the heavily Muslim southern provinces. Duncan McCargo is the author of Tearing Apart the Land: Islam and Legitimacy in Southern Thailand. Plus, we’ll look at the ongoing protests in Bangkok.
