Duncan McCargo Publishes the Article “Thailand in 2017: Politics on Hold” in Asian Survey


Duncan McCargo, Visiting Professor of Political Science at Columbia University and Professor of Political Science at the University of Leeds, published the article “Thailand in 2017: Politics on Hold” in the journal Asian Survey Vol. 58, no. 1 (2018).

From the article abstract: “Following the epochal funeral of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej in October 2017, Thailand stands at a difficult crossroads. A new constitution was ratified in April, and the military junta is running out of reasons to stick around. Yet Thailand remains deeply polarized politically, while King Vajiralongkorn is untested and lacks popular legitimacy.”
