Publication Abstract

Download PDF versionKnodel, John E. 2010. "An Elephantine Misunderstanding: A miscommunication between researchers and their subjects." PSC Research Report No. 10-700. 4 2010.

The incident that constitutes the core of this account occurred on June 23, 2004 but the background for it dates from May 10, 1992. On that day the Bangkok Post featured a two-page spread depicting “the misery of those left behind” referring to the desertion of elderly parents in rural Thailand by their adult children who migrated away mostly to Bangkok.

Country of focus: Thailand.
