Dr Ome Chattranond

In this seminar, Ome Chattranond will explore the relationship between regional economic development plans and policies at the sub-national level and the international level.

The research employs qualitative documentary research to understand the essence and meaning of development approaches in Thailand particularly in the Northeast and the regional framework, especially on issues related to inequality.

The analysis is based on international political economic approach focusing on concepts relating to uneven geographical development. It mainly argues that the regionalization formulate the transnational capitalist expansion that potentially enlarges inequality in this particular region.
