Redefine Thailand

Redefine Thailand” is the latest book from SIU. We will try to answer the question “What actually is Thailand?” from the cultural, historical and social viewpoint.

We believe that the chronic and ongoing conflict of Thailand will need a newer definition of Thailand, from the root of the society itself. This book is the complement to our big and challenging theme “Repositioning Thailand”, which we tried to answer it from economical viewpoint in our previous book “Transform Thailand“. Please see our beginning statement of the project (in Thai).

Redefine Thailand project had interviewed some key social thinkers and scholars on the same questions “What actually is Thailand?” and let these people express their opinion on our challenge. Here are the listed of people in this book (with a link to published interview article):
