Introduction
Although Thailand’s new constitution overturned in principle the state monopoly on mass media broadcasts, in practice the government and military continue to enjoy almost total control of the airwaves. In response, Supinya Klangnarong spearheads a national campaign for electronic media reform, using research, policy advocacy and public lobbying to put the production of radio and television broadcasts within the reach of the common citizen.
