By Tyrell Haberkorn, postdoctoral fellow in Peace&Conflict Studies at Colgate UniversityIn July 2007, nearly 400 citizens were arrested as suspected ""terrorists"" involved in Islamic insurgency in the three southern-most provinces of Thailand. Denied knowledge of the evidence against them, they were given the option of being formally charged under the criminal code or undergoing a four-month ""occupational training"" course. This podcast examines these detentions as part of the spectrum of violence in southern Thailand.In fall 2008, members of the Introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies course at Colgate University embarked on a collaborative project to understand and interrogate 20th century histories of war and violence, as well as its resolutions. As part of this endeavor, students and faculty analyze and disseminate information about marginalized conflicts.References: http://www.colgate.edu/academics/departments-and-programs/peace-and-conflict-studies/podcast-serieshttp://www.colgate.edu/pconIf you like what you see, subscribe to our channel.Colgate University (http://colgate.edu) is a highly selective residential liberal arts institution distinguished by academic excellence, interdisciplinary inquiry, and increasing student digital IQ.
