Thailand has in recent years been marred by political instability which reached a peak in April when the country experienced it worst political violence in two decades that resulted in scores of protesters and soldiers killed and hundreds more injured. How should recent events in Thailand be interpreted? Is the government committed to democratic development? What do the people want? How has the recent violence interrupted the nation's political and economic progress? Is national reconciliation possible? What lies in store?
