    FCCT Political Reform in Thailand - 13. Mai 2009

    Endlich ´mal auch etwas für den Dieter :-)

    Political reform in Thailand - A panel with leading analysts

    Wednesday, May 13, at 8:00 pm
    with buffet dinner at 7:00 pm
    (Please see pricing and reservation procedure below)

    Thailand is a country deeply divided by politics, with former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra as the central polarizing figure.
    His supporters say he enfranchised huge swathes of the rural electorate, giving them voice for the first time in Thai political history. His detractors say his wanton corruption dealt a fatal blow to the country´s democracy by weakening its constitutional checks and balances.

    In recent months the rifts have deepened between the Red shirts (Thaksin´s supporters) and Yellow shirts (his opponents). Street protests have culminated in riots, cancelled regional summits and blocked airports, marring the country´s image and costing the local economy hundreds of billions of baht.

    Analysts say overcoming the current divisions could take five to 10 years.
    Current moves are afoot by the Abhisit Vejjajiva administration to amend the 2007 Constitution, which was written by the coup makers who ousted Thaksin from power in 2006. But will this mark a return to the popular 1997 Constitution, and result in an amnesty for politicians previously banned from politics by the Constitutional Court? Or will it take steps closer to the so-called "New Politics" promoted by the Yellow shirt People´s Alliance for Democracy, who say the concept of western liberal democracy is ill-suited to Thailand?

    Leading political analysts will discuss the reform process in Thailand and what steps they say need to be taken to reach a peaceful political resolution. A key matter of debate will be whether one person, one vote is a realistic solution to the current problems, or whether a system focused on consensus building would be more effective in solving the current turmoil.

    Speakers

    - Dr Thitinan Pongsudhirak, Assistant Professor, Department of International Relations and Director of the Institute of Security and International Studies, Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University.

    - Dr Michael H Nelson, Visiting Scholar, Faculty of Political Science Chulalongkorn University, and a Senior Research Associate, Southeast Asian Studies University of Passau, Germany. His research has focused on Thai politics, comparative sub-national government and decentralisation, and globalisation in Southeast Asia.

    @waanjai, kommst du auch mit einer Abordnung der Roten Armee Fraktion(für Isaan Demokraten und die Wiedereinsetzung von Thaksin) aus Udo Thani?

    Dieter war zur Fortbildung verhindert. Deshalb gibt es nur einen Bericht von PHILIP GOLINGAI


    http://philipgolingai.blogspot.com/2...i-society.html

    Eine Passage hieraus:

    “Certainly everyone accepts that this is not a normal time,” the director of the Institute of Security and International Studies, Thailand’s leading think tank on foreign affairs, said.
    “The Prime Minister (Abhisit Vejjajiva) said this is not a normal time. He wants normalcy. Everyone wants normalcy.
    “When was the last time normalcy existed in Thailand?”
    Answering his own question, he noted that the last time normalcy in Thailand flourished and prevailed was in the 1990s
    “(During that period) you can more or less know what to expect,” he said."

    Das wird also die Bewunderer der politischen Grabesruhe - die am liebsten Thailand unter das Kriegsrecht stellen würden - garnicht freuen.

    @waanjai, wenn der Dieter mal in den FCCT will, dann macht er das mit mir. Erstens kostet es nichts, ich bin dort Member, und zweitens will er nicht mit jedem durch BKK ziehen.

    war nicht in den 90ern Chuan Leekpai insgesamt 6 Jahre an der Macht?
