dc.description.abstractThe outbreak of ethnic conflicts within Thailand, although currently associated with only a few human casualties, is of particular interest as the country is renowned as a haven of acceptance. More interestingly however, is the inability to divorce the environmental and ethnic issues within the nation. Thailand obediently followed the neo-classical development paradigm and consequently gained economic status, but now suffers from serious environmental problems. Therefore this paper explores how the effects of past development policies as well new political pressures and environmental concerns has exasperated existing conceptions of' otherness' within Thai society, creating an ethnically tense atmosphere.en_US
