CONCEPT PAPER


 The Inter-religious Council for Peace – Thailand (IRC-Thailand)


  Challenges The continued tension and violence in the southern border provinces of Thailand have resulted in the loss of over 3,500 lives since January 2004.  While the vast majority (more than 80%) of Thailand’s 64 million people is Buddhist, the largest religious minority (about 3-5%) is Muslim.  The Muslim minority is mainly clustered in the five southern provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwas, Satul and parts of Songkla where Muslims represent about 80% of the population. The current challenges and problems in the South have complex and inter-related causes including historical, economic, political, identity and cultural ones.  The problem is further compounded by other factors such as corruption, illegal trade, tendency of Buddhist and Muslim pupils to join different schools, conflict between villagers and local officials, mistrust between Muslims and security officials. While the current conflict in the South is not religious in essence, religious identity has been misused to fuel the conflict.
