Title: Precarity and Social Mobilization among Migrant Workers from Myanmar in Thailand
Date of publication: 15 February 2010
Description/subject: ABSTRACT: "Fleeing state-sponsored violence and economic decline in their home country, hundreds of thousands of Myanmar émigrés have in recent years crossed the border into Thailand in search of a better life. For the estimated 2 million Myanmar migrants now living there, however, life in Thailand presents its own challenges. With insufficient legal provisions to handle the influx of migrants, the Thai government has largely turned a blind eye to abuse and exploitation suffered by migrant workers. Yet despite poor working conditions and exploitation, there does not appear to be much of a call to improve conditions through mobilization among the Myanmar migrant community. The marked absence of mobilization on any level thus begs the question: why is the migrant population in Thailand so passive in the face of severe strain and exploitation? This thesis explores the issue of non- mobilization among migrant groups, using as a framework two core concepts: social mobilization and precarity. The long-standing discourse on social mobilization focuses on social and political action in response to societal strain, taking into account other factors such as access to resources and institutional opportunities.

Title: The military in politics in Thailand and Burma: a strategic withdrawal?
Date of publication: June 1995
Description/subject: Abstract: "This thesis examines the theories on military intervention in politics and disengagement from what can be seen as extreme participation in the political process, in the context of Thailand and Burma. It argues that although there are a plethora of theories and theorists dealing with the subject there is an explainable process by which it is possible to begin to understand military participation in politics. Also, that there are discernable incentives and obstacles to military action, effecting the decision to expand the military role to direct intervention and why they might choose to limit their participation. It also suggests that there are many factors, economic, historical, sociological and political, which contribute to what can be seen in some countries as endemic military intervention in the changing of government..."
