DUNCAN MCCARGO PDF

Fascinated by Asia since my undergraduate days, I've spent several years in Thailand, and have also lived in Singapore, taught in Belfast, Cambodia and Japan, and published on Indonesia and Vietnam. As I hate repeating myself, I change research topics regularly. I am committed to doing serious fieldwork. I often brief senior UN and government officials, and have twice testified in Thai before parliamentary committees in Bangkok. Recent appearances have included: a keynote address in Kyushu, conference presentations in Toronto and New York, a series of lectures in Indonesia and Thailand, two research seminars in Shanghai, and a Columbia alumni event in Tokyo. I am probably best known for my agenda-setting contributions to current debates on the politics of Thailand, but my work is centrally concerned with the nature of power.

Fascinated by Asia since my undergraduate days, I've spent several years in Thailand, and have also lived in Singapore, taught in Belfast, Cambodia and Japan, and published on Indonesia and Vietnam.

As I hate repeating myself, I change research topics regularly. I am committed to doing serious fieldwork. I often brief senior UN and government officials, and have twice testified in Thai before parliamentary committees in Bangkok.

Recent appearances have included: a keynote address in Kyushu, conference presentations in Toronto and New York, a series of lectures in Indonesia and Thailand, two research seminars in Shanghai, and a Columbia alumni event in Tokyo. I am probably best known for my agenda-setting contributions to current debates on the politics of Thailand, but my work is centrally concerned with the nature of power. How do entrenched elites seek to retain power in the face of challenges from new political forces?

How do challengers to state power try to undermine the legitimacy of existing regimes? These interests have led me to study questions relating to the uses of media, sub-national conflicts, and the politics of justice, among other issues. My work on the politics of contemporary Thailand has covered issues such as Buddhism, political reform, electoral politics, the media, the role of the military and the Southern conflict. I have an interest in several other Southeast Asian countries, and continue to write on Cambodia.

I am currently working on understanding the politics behind military coups; I am also interested in critiques of transitional justice and legalism, and in the recent revival of notions of treason. I currently hold a grant from the United States Institute of Peace to examine peace messaging in the Thai elections. Skip to main content. June 4th, Nordic Institute of Asian Studies.
