The internal colonization in Vietnam is the result of the distribution of labour in global level which forces Vietnam facing underdevelopment. Besides, this international labour distribution causes also the unequal development within the country itself, called internal colonization. Regarding Vietnam, this country is affected by the internal distribution of labour causing the emergence of metropoles and satellite cities. The metropoles cities of Vietnam including Hanoi and Saigon are the economic and political centres of the country and the city of French civilization. Meanwhile, the satellite cities are the cities surrounding the metropoles. Their roles are producing goods from the huge plantations, industrial estates, and mines to feed capitalism system as demanded by its metropoles country, France, and the global trades.</p> Jirayoot Seemung Bhasrah Boonyarithi Copyright (c) 2022 Burapha Journal of Political Economy 2022-06-29 2022-06-29 10 1 30 54 The Real Problems and Roles of Assistant to Member of the House of Representatives https://so01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/pegbuu/article/view/256450 <p>The problems of appointing assistant to member of the house of representatives (MPs) of the Thai Parliament, both past research and factual findings, indicates that there is the appointment of an assistant to the operation of the House of Representatives who are their own relatives or related regardless of efficiency knowledge, competence and potential for work. At the same time, the actual role of the assistant is unclear, the position has drawn criticism and attention that instead of being nominated after thorough careful consideration, it supports the interests of the MPs. Including the finding of whether or not the MPs have really utilized these staff to assist with tasks, the result showed that the assistant to the Members of the House of Representatives position does not contribute to the effectiveness and promotion of legislative affairs of the work of the House of Representatives.</p> Natchanuch Pichitthanarat Copyright (c) 2022 Burapha Journal of Political Economy 2022-06-29 2022-06-29 10 1 55 73 Pakistan Security Policy and Its Role Towards Terrorism Problem in South Asia https://so01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/pegbuu/article/view/257005 <p>Terrorism in Pakistan and the interconnected areas in South Asia is a serious issue with a long historical timeline. As a theater of terror, the Pakistani theater offers a good ground for studying, analyzing, and understanding conflict studies related issues concerning security and its far-reaching effects on the states, civilians, and the multinational organizations through a multidimensional conflict area. Political conflict, religious conflict, and ethnic conflict have framed and led to a form of contentious politics out of the political-institutional framework through violence and terrorism. This article focuses on analyzing and understanding the intersecting factors behind terrorist incidents in Pakistan and various interconnected areas in South Asia. Pakistan’s policy concerns internal and international security at different levels and how it addresses the threats to security and terrorism.</p> <p> The article deduces that the phenomenon of terrorism occurring in Pakistan and its interconnected areas of South Asia are the results of the intra-state political framework which does not offer opportunities and prospects for the marginalized citizens to participate equally in politics to express their demands and for equal and fair participation. The government of Pakistan wants to both utilize and solve the problems of the rise of terrorism in constructive ways that depend on the context of the situation, which will be beneficial. As an actor who interacts or engages behind the scenes of terrorism or as one who suppresses the terrorism through different mechanisms, in addition, those acts are consistent with the threat assessment based on the neo-classical Realist model.</p> Adeeb Yusuf Copyright (c) 2022 Burapha Journal of Political Economy 2022-06-29 2022-06-29 10 1 74 102 Experiences and Opinions of Academic Stakeholders on School Uniforms Reflecting the Poverty and Inequality Problems: An Analysis Based on the Symbolic Violence Approach https://so01.tci-thaijo.org/index.php/pegbuu/article/view/255334 <p>Are school uniforms being the cause of symbolic violence that affects poverty and inequality in Thailand? is the question that this research determines to answer. The data was collected through interviews with relevant stakeholders including 3 teachers and school administrators, 7 parents, and 3 students to obtain their experiences and opinions towards the school uniforms. The study found that 1) The majority of parents, teachers, and school administrators support school uniforms. 2) School uniforms are inadequate among the poor. 3) The existing Government welfare scheme is insufficient to cover the actual expenses of school uniforms. 4) Most teachers, school administrators, and parents believe that school uniforms are useful and necessary. 5) Parents who support school uniforms are afraid of change and are concerned that their children would spend money excessively on clothes. 6) Urban parents are concerned that their children would not be socially accepted if school uniforms were not mandatory. 7) The school uniforms are not only hiding inequality but also create inequality. 8) The school uniforms are the cause of symbolic violence, and a tool in the “Strategy for eliminating competitors”, which is used to prevent poor children from accessing educational opportunities. The solution is to have a “free school uniform welfare provided by the state” to cover all costs of school uniforms.</p> Thanadon Phuthanasiri Copyright (c) 2022 Burapha Journal of Political Economy 2022-06-29 2022-06-29 10 1 1 29
