Overview

Examines popular responses to electoral fraud in Thailand and the Philippines, and makes comparisons with three other Southeast Asian countries. Provides a detailed description and analysis of the activities of PollWatch, an election monitoring organization in Thailand, and compares PollWatch with similar non-governmental organizations in the Philippines such as NAMFREL, and with election practices in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore. Shows how political theory's clear distinction between civil society and the state becomes fruitfully ambiguous in Southeast Asia to allow for greater political possibilities.
