UNDP on political security in Thailand

June 3, 2010, 6:07 p.m.


Via Zunia, this UNDP report (PDF) ((2009 Thailand Human Development Report entitled Human Security, Today and Tomorrow)) looks at six dimensions of human security in Thailand, including what the authors call "political security.

This report surveys the state of human security in Thailand today from six dimensions: economic security, food security, environmental security, health security, personal security and political security. Over recent decades, as a result of economic growth, an expanded role for government and an active civil society, many of the harshest threats to human security have been overcome. On any international scale, Thailand should be considered more than “moderately secure.” But some groups are still at risk, and some problems have defied solution.
