      Abstract

      Identity is the most important part of politics when we deal about conflict. Many of the conflict started from the difference of identity among the people of a country. Thailand is one of some nations that we can say as a homogenous nation. Based on the power of King and the single religion, (which is Buddhism), Thailand step up as a strong economic country in Southeast Asia. In spite of the impressive economic growth, Thailand suffered some political trouble. The rapid shift of government and insurgencies at south part still arise as political burden. And just like the old times, King’s role and state religion play important part as national identity to save national political condition.
