Rethinking strategy policy of counter insurgency in southern Thailand

The three southern border provinces which are Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat, and part of western songkla in Thailand are facing internal conflict with international implications. The conflict has many root causes; history, political, economic, and social problems. The Royal Thai Government will be rethinking strategy policies of their counter insurgency and issuing a new approach toward the problems. This paper will evaluate this internal conflict to determine the grievances and drivers of conflict and propose a new approach for consideration to guide future policy and strategy. The new dimension of Thailand National Security Policy (2007-2011) attaches its great important to human security which is considered as the core of the new dimension of national security based on strengths and weaknesses of the society. The success of implementing the Thailand National Security Policy depends largely on effective policy execution, implementation and management; comprehensive academic research into security related matters as a pathway to build up the knowledge based security community; encouraging the people to understand their duties and responsibilities; working in close collaboration and strengthening networks with non governmental agencies as an important supporting part to achieve the objectives stipulated in the policy; and putting in place the valid and reliable policy evaluation mechanisms and systems.
