Fascinated by Asia since my undergraduate days, I've spent several years in Thailand, and have also lived in Singapore, taught in Belfast, Cambodia and Japan, and published on Indonesia and Vietnam. As I hate repeating myself, I change research topics regularly. I am committed to doing serious fieldwork. I often brief senior UN and government officials, and have twice testified in Thai before parliamentary committees in Bangkok. Recent appearances have included: a keynote address in Kyushu, conference presentations in Toronto and New York, a series of lectures in Indonesia and Thailand, two research seminars in Shanghai, and a Columbia alumni event in Tokyo. I am probably best known for my agenda-setting contributions to current debates on the politics of Thailand, but my work is centrally concerned with the nature of power.

Hailing from the UK, Professor Duncan McCargo has spent extended periods of time across South East Asia and has produced remarkable work in the fields of political science and justice especially with regards to Thailand. He currently holds the position of Director of the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies, whilst continuing to teach and research as a professor of political science at the University of Copenhagen. The Centre is privileged to conduct a more in-depth interview with him, focusing on his intellectual journey and views on researching South-East Asian politics as well as its challenges and opportunities.

Professor Duncan McCargo and his Journey in Understanding Southeast Asian Politics
I may be best known for my agenda-setting contributions to current debates on the politics of Thailand, but my work is centrally concerned with the nature of power. How do entrenched elites seek to retain power in the face of challenges from new political forces? How do challengers to state power try to undermine the legitimacy of existing regimes? These interests have led me to study questions relating to the uses of media, sub-national conflicts, and the politics of justice, among other issues.
