Media attention to Thailand’s Deep State

In Thailand, currently under a military dictatorship, a JCA article is getting plenty of media attention.

Eugénie Mérieau’s article “Thailand’s Deep State, Royal Power and the Constitutional Court (1997–2015)” (DOI: 10.1080/00472336.2016.1151917) has been mentioned very widely and the article itself has had some 3,000 downloads.Eugenie

Perhaps the most important op-ed that discusses Eugénie’s article is that by respected commentator Nidhi Eoseewong, which is now available in English at the Prachatai news site.

Her article is a part of a JCA Special Issue titled Military, Monarchy and Repression: Assessing Thailand’s Authoritarian Turn, edited by Veerayooth Kanchoochat and Kevin Hewison.

As we said when it was released in February, this is an important article assessing the way in which a conservative elite has ruled Thailand and how it seeks to manage succession.
