Reuters/New York Times cites The Asia Foundation’s Thailand Southern Survey

The piece highlights three references to The Asia Foundation’s Democracy and Conflict in Southern Thailand: A Survey of the Thai Electorate in Yala, Narathiwas, and Pattani including the issue of decentralization, in which “51% of those surveyed…opposed folding the provinces into a single elected government” and perceptions of the conflict, with “more people fear[ing] the insurgents than the military.” Read the full article: “Analysis: A debate over autonomy in Thailand’s restive south.”
