The Conflict in Southern Thailand

This paper examines the insurgency in Southern Thailand. It offers an analysis of the historical, political, economic, religious and cultural influences in this conflict. It finds that Malay nationalist identity in the south is the strongest driver of the insurgency, and it suggests that the government needs to reassess its response in order to bring the violence to a satisfactory end.
