UPCOMING SEMINAR: "Job Security and Human Skills in the Age of Automation" [15 November 2017]

Time: 08.30 - 13.00 hrs.

Venue: Alumni Conference Room, 12th Floor, Political Science Building 3, Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University

The rise of robotics and automation is becoming evident in Asia. According to the International Federation of Robotics, by 2019, more than 1.4 million new industrial robots will be installed in factories around the world, with China being the strongest growing market for the robotics
industry.

A recent study by International Labor Organization suggests that over 70% of salaried workers in 5 key sectors in ASEAN countries are at risk of being displaced by automation. The study also points out the need to upgrade STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) skills among workers in general. Cloud technology and big data analytics,
Internet of Things, and digital marketing are also highlighted to have transformative impacts on jobs in ASEAN.

The roundtable discussion will focus on the above issues and university’s task of preparing young students to cope with the future. Given the state of the Thailand policies on economy, education and development, the question then arises: what actions could be taken at the state, university and individual levels to prepare students in order to cope with this new
reality.

The Institut de Recherche sur l'Asie du Sud-Est Contemporaine  (IRASEC) and Center for Social Development Studies (CSDS), Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University are glad to welcome you to a public lecture at Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok by Philippe DESCOLA, Professor at Collège de France, Chair in Anthropology of Nature

 

Rethinking the Nature/Culture Divide
Notions such as ‘nature’ or ‘culture’ are the product of a particular historical process and express the specific distribution of ontological properties to beings in the world that the Moderns have devised. Other civilizations have adopted other systems of distribution, resulting in ontologies and principles of association between humans and non humans that differ widely from the one which emerged in Europe a few centuries ago. The challenge for the social sciences is to acknowledge this diversity, while retaining the ambition to explain it in non Eurocentric terms.

 

Discussants:
- Dr. Yukti MUKDAWIJITRA (Faculty of Sociology and Anthropology, Thammasat University)
- Thanes WONGYANNAWA (Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University)

Session organized at the 13th International Conference on Thai Studies
"Globalized Thailand?" Connectivity, Conflict, and Conundrums of Thai Studies
 

15:15-16:45, 16th July 2017, Chiang Mai International Exhibition and Convention Center

Session convened by the Center for Social Development Studies, Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University

Thailand’s companies have become major investors in neighboring countries, including in agribusiness, hydropower, mining and various forms of industry. Thailand’s companies are backed by government policy, and typically financed by Thai commercial banks as well as, sometimes, Thailand’s Export Import Bank (Thai Exim). Thailand’s regional investment has furthermore been facilitated by various regional economic integration programs, including the Asian Development Bank’s Greater Mekong Subregion Program and more recently the ASEAN Economic Community. As one of the major economies of mainland Southeast Asia, Thailand has sought to positioned itself as central to economic regionalization. Given that Thailand itself is embedded within a wider global network of production, its companies’ investment in neighboring countries’ resource extraction and commodity production can also tied to a wider global political economy.

Whilst it seems that investment, commodities, goods and natural resources flow readily across borders, the same cannot be said of access to justice. In this panel, empirical case studies will be presented of Thailand’s cross-border investments that have in the process resulted in environmental and social harms, and in some cases violated human rights. The panel explores the various processes and arenas that have emerged as communities and civil society have sought redress and access to justice. These arenas have included in the national courts of the project host country, but also through various formal and informal cross-border processes that link to Thailand, including via Thailand’s National Human Rights Commission (TNHRC), and in one example a case ruled upon by Thailand’s administrative court. Meanwhile, a report of the TNHRC on the Dawei Special Economic Zone in Myanmar led to a Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs recommendation in March 2016 that the government should set up a mechanism for the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights for Thai companies investing overseas. Thus, a wider array of international norms is also brought into play, reflecting the legal pluralism that nowadays governs cross-border investments. This also brings into focus a question of the extra-territorial obligations of Thailand with regard to the investment of Thai companies.

This panel will critically evaluate Thailand’s investment role in the region through the lens of transnational social and environmental justice. Through empirical case studies on agribusiness, hydropower and special economic zones, the political economy of these investments will be explored in order to understand the production of injustice and human rights violations.  The papers will ask: what are the roles, opportunities and challenges for public interest law, national/ regional human rights institutions, other transnational soft law mechanisms, and civil society to protect and promote human rights on Thailand’s investments?

UPCOMING PUBLIC SEMINAR: "Water Scarcity and Disaster Recovery in Hakha Town, Chin State, Myanmar: Technical Problem or Governance Challenge? [5 July 2017]

download.jpg

14:00-16:00, Alumni Meeting Room, 12th Floor, Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University

Co-organized by the Center for Social Development Studies (CSDS) and the Master of Arts in International Development Studies of the Faculty of Political Science Chulalongkorn University.

This event will be broadcast on Facebook live: www.facebook.com/CSDSChula/

Introduction

Hakha town is the capital of Chin State, Myanmar, located in the mountainous Northwest of the country. Chin State is one of the poorest states in Myanmar, including in terms of economy, basic infrastructure, and access to health care and education. This reflects a lack of long-term investment in basic services, as well as being the product of Myanmar’s long-standing conflict.

In recent years, the town’s population has faced growing water insecurity. This has created great hardships for the local population, especially in the dry season. For those who cannot access water from private springs, or afford to buy water, they must queue sometimes for hours to collect relatively small amounts of water. This situation has caused discontent towards the Municipal, State and Union level government, and has also on occasion caused conflict amongst the local population themselves.

Compounding the difficulties faced by Hakha’s population, in June 2015, Hakha town suffered a major landslide. As a result, over 4000 people living in at-risk places were moved, many permanently to a new settlement. In the settlement, the government has provided land or houses, yet basic services including water and schools were lagging behind. In the longer-term, the resettled people, who are mostly farmers, are uncertain about how they can make a living without access to farming land, and a perceived limited support from the government.

Research presented at the seminar will show how water insecurity is the product of physical, social and political processes that are inter-related, including: rising water demand due to a growing population without systematic town planning; deforestation of the surrounding watershed which has reduced water supply; and underinvestment in water supply infrastructure. The seminar will explore the underlying causes of these dynamics, as a basis for deliberating approaches to ensure equitable and reliable water access for all of Hakha’s residents.

CONFERENCE: 5th International Conference on International Relations and Development (ICIRD) 2017, "Paradox of Human Security: Democracy, Rights, and Conflict" [23-24 June 2017]

08:00 - 18:15

Hosted by Faculty of Political Science and Peace Information Center, Thammasat University

Co-Organized by Faculty of Political Science, Thammasat University; Master of Arts Program in International Development Studies, Chulalongkorn University; Institute of Human Rights and Peace Studies, Mahidol University; Regional Center for Social Sciences and Sustainable Development (RCSD), Chiang Mai University; School of Social Innovation, Mae Fah Luang University

 

Over the past few decades, the concept of human security and policy implementation has constantly faced challenges and criticisms. Among others, the 9/11 attacks particularly persuade many that traditional (state-based) security should be at the core of international relations debates. These debates call for the mobilization of military efforts to curtail the widespread of global ‘terrorist cells’ at the expense of overlooking social, economic and political conditions that provide fertile ground for the acts of terror. Participants in these acts are often from the marginalized parts of the world where resources are monopolized by the local and global elite class. More importantly, they emerge from territories occupied by foreign powers whose collaboration with national leaders exacerbate the oppressive situation. Even though this is not the case for every ‘perpetrators,’ one can still argue that a crucial justification for their acts of terror originates in the globalised state of human insecurity – be it exploitation, inequality, prolonged civil war, and dismissed rights to express one’s identity.

It is necessary to bring back debates of human (in)security in connection with ongoing threats to state security. Without reviving this connection, it is unlikely that we would arrive at a comprehensive understanding as to why acts of terror have increasingly become the weapon of choice that has killed 30,685 lives in 2014 alone; what drove participants in cruel attacks in France, Belgium, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan, Iraq, Australia, Somalia, Lebanon and Indonesia; what are the justifications for the use of indiscriminate violence by fundamentalist groups; how civil wars have created waves of refugees; and how the failure in reforming global economy has precipitated economic disparity between the rich and the poor, and how this economic phenomenon is interpreted in a discourse of oppression that urges armed and unarmed resistance to it. Put differently, addressing and tackling the current state of global (in)security requires the understanding of the interwoven relationship of global peace, development, human rights and democracy.

 

Conference objectives

The International Conference on International Relations and Development (ICIRD) is one of the key activities organized within the framework of the ICIRD Knowledge Network.

The main objective of the conference is to provide a forum for debate between scholars, practitioners, civil society and community representatives on current development, international relations and human rights trends in Southeast Asia, with a particular focus or themes which differ from year to year. 
The International Conference on International Relations, Development and Human Rights (ICIRD) will held in Bangkok, Thailand, on 23-24 June 2017, which aims at engaging its participants in the discussion and debates which seek the relevance of different aspects of human (in)security with contemporary global issues, especially the current state of international security.
