Project Details


Australia and Thailand are among the few highly praised countries in 'flattening the curve' of the COVID-19 pandemic according to the Global COVID-19 Index. Yet, the two successful stories present the unique contexts and principles in shaping a response to the crisis. The project aims to build a collection of expert knowledge based on socio-cultural, political, and media analysis to examine how the two countries tackle the outbreak and to highlight the lessons learned for strategic future management. It also strengthens institutional engagement and bilateral relationships through a collaboration between Australian and Thai research teams. Ultimately, the project generates knowledge that will contribute to the needs of Thailand and other ASEAN countries during and following the pandemic by providing a comprehensive source of academic knowledge and policy reference for practitioners. Tangible outcomes include a series of bilingual online Op-Ed articles and multimedia eBook.
