Narumon Arunotai (Chulalongkorn University, Thailand): "Hopeless at Sea, Landless on Shore: Looking beyond the Sea Nomads Plights in Thailand"

Friday, 15 July 2016, 4pm

ÖAW, Institut für Sozialanthropologie
A-1030 Wien, Apostelgasse 23

Since the beginning of 2016, the plights of several sea nomad or “Chao Lay” groups in Thailand found their ways into national newspaper headlines and television news coverage. The persistent land disputes and other critical problems require an investigation beyond the conflict and dichotomy between “indigenous communities” and “private businesses”. This talk will use the sea nomad plights as a springboard to understand the lives and situations of the indigenous peoples in the context of the capitalist economy facilitated by the bureaucratic state.
