His presentation comes under the heading “Democracy in Multi-ethnic Society”. It is expected to be attended by religious leaders, lawyers, CSO representatives and academics.

“It seems they are eager to learn from Burma’s experience in the peace effort and see how much it can be applied to the Thai situation,” said Khuensai, whose PI also has a branch — and soon to be bigger — office in Rangoon. “Well, I think we will also be learning from them too.”

He had already given a presentation in his Shan-accented Thai at the Naresuan University hosted Thai-Myanmar Studies in Asean Community seminar, which was organized by Dr Charnvit Kasetsiri, one of Thailand’s leading scholars, on 18- 19 December 2014.
