Since the end of the Cold War Thailand has been the poster child of democratization processes in Southeast Asia. Students protests, farmers' activisms, a thriving civil society and expanding middle classes seemed to make the country to a model of successful democratic transition. In the last decades, however, many of the forces that supported that process have turned sour toward electoral politics. This talk explores how that happened--in term of new class alliances, discourses of corruption and morality, and legalism – and casts Thailand as a space of experimentation for a new model of authoritarianism, inspired by Beijing and spreading throughout the region.
