    Thailand's tale told via 'The Nation'

    News, Thitinan Pongsudhirak, Published on 28/06/2019

    » Nearly five decades ago, The Nation newspaper started out as a pro-democracy, anti-military news organisation. It was fiercely independent and invariably hard-hitting vis-à-vis the powers-that-be. An English-language newspaper owned by Thais from the outset, it prided itself for having neither fear nor favour. Its lamentable expiry as a print newspaper today -- an online version will continue -- provides multiple parallels for Thailand's contemporary political history, ongoing polarisation and the changing nature of the business of journalism worldwide.

    Late King's wishes for Thai children

    News, Published on 12/01/2019

    » As Thailand celebrates National Children's Day today, I wish to share my recollection of a memorable audience with His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and his profound message and wishes for the children of Thailand and the world. I had the great honour to meet the late king on Nov 12, 1998. I was then serving as Unicef's regional director for East Asia and the Pacific, based in Bangkok. The occasion of my audience with the late king at Chitralada Palace was to accompany visiting Unicef executive director Carol Bellamy. Also accompanying us was the late Thai foreign minister Surin Pitsuwan. ​

    It's best not to     forget lessons of 1991 coup

    News, Ploenpote Atthakor, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Feb 23, the day the military top brass toppled the government of Chatichai Choonhavan in a bloodless coup in 1991 (with a political bloodbath, known as the Black May uprising the following year) passed by almost without notice.

    Power of finance

    Tell truth on terrorism

    News, Editorial, Published on 01/09/2015

    » Last week's arrest of a suspect in the Ratchaprasong bombing murders also rekindled a recurring controversy. It is the use and actual definition of terrorism. Serious and informed minds have tackled this argument for decades. Some senior authorities have argued since the bomb exploded at the Erawan shrine on Aug 17 that the atrocity was not terrorism. This only raises another question: If it was not terrorism, what was it?

    Election not the issue, it's when

    Veera Prateepchaikul, Published on 17/12/2013

    » It should be made clear from the outset that most of the people who took to the streets in two mass protests against the government and the Thaksin regime, on Nov 24 and Dec 9, and those who regularly join the rallies at the Democracy Monument and nearby are not against an election as a matter of principle.
