One of the final weeks was spent looking at the conflicts in Thailand. We focused on the aftermath of the 2008-2010 political crisis and the ongoing difficulties in the South of the country in the provinces of Yala, Pattani, Narathiwat. I felt that the lectures gave a comprehensive synopsis of the complexity of the issues facing modern Thai society.
