This development is placing constraints on basic human freedoms which can be subjected to abuse for non-peaceful purposes.

Education for Leadership Development in Democratic Society

The book emphasises on the cultural and educational development of Thai society through a special training of prospective leadership in the bureaucracy, political parties and private sectors. An appropriate civic and political education curriculum should be introduced at both the college or university level and upper high school level. Consequently, teacher training on this purpose should be conducted by allocating some periods of time for political and historical studies.
