In this podcast, Stephen Norris, Control Risks' political and security risk analyst for Thailand considers the likely next developments in the ongoing political turmoil which has stalled investment in the country.

Thailand’s Constitutional Court is due to make its ruling shortly on the petition filed by anti-government senators calling for the removal of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra following accusations that she violated the constitution by appointing a member of the extended Shinawatra family to a vital security post. At the same time, anti-government protestors are returning to the streets after taking time out for Thai new year and whilst this political impasse goes on, separatist insurgency groups have stepped up their militant activity in the troubled South of the country.
