Panel Proposal 1: Rural Transformation and Wellbeing: The Shifting Cultural Values and The Stagnation of Big Structure.

Panel Organizers: Dr.Buapun Promphakping (buapun@kku.ac.th)

With the presence of globalization, changes of rural are rapid. This include the perception of wealth and wellbeing of rural people. In Thailand, for instance, views concerned with wellbeing of people have become oriented towards materialism. Modern goods, which in previous were considered to be ‘conspicuous consumption goods’ become symbols of wealth and wellbeing. However, while there are dynamics transformation of rural, there seems to be less dynamics of socio-political structures. Thailand has been fallen into the ‘middle income trap’ for more than two decades. This has cubed opportunities of farmers or those who earned their living from conventional agricultures to move away (upwards) due to limit expansions of ‘upper’ income employments. In addition, rural people were mobilized and engaging in national politics. Adversely, there has been a growing demand to cube (rural) people participation in national politics, on the basis that the participation of people is managed with ill intention of politicians. All these characterize the stagnation of ‘big structure’, and this starkly happens against the dynamics transformation of rural society.

This panel will encourage panelists to explore the disparity between structural constraints and the dynamics changing of rural agency. Preferably, papers presented will be recruited from ranges of countries to allow comparison and to generate discussion.    

 

Panel Proposal 2: Urban Growth: Vulnerability to Climate Change and Global Crisis.

Panel Chairs: Dr.Thanapauge Chamaratana (thanacha@kku.ac.th) and Dr.Buapun Promphakping (buapun@kku.ac.th)

                Urbanization has long been recognized as the imperative process of changes toward development, and this become characterized transformation of the developing worlds which were primarily agricultural, rural-based economy. At present, rates of urbanization of countries in Asia are reported to be the highest. However, urbanization in the developing worlds has taken different track, met with different challenges from those happened in western industrialized economies. In recent years, there has been growing concerns of the impact of climate changes on urban residences that have been rapidly grown. Meanwhile the urbanity itself has become enabling and constraining to livelihoods of people. Confronting with climate change and the growing urbanization, this panel encourage panelists to explore ranges of issue, such as wellbeing of urban residence, vulnerability, urban governance, urban infrastructure, water, etc.
