Abstract

Professor Chaiwat Satha-Anand is a renowned political scientist and peace activist from Thailand, concerned especially with Islam and non-violence, as well as Islam in Thailand. He is currently Professor of Political Science at Bangkok’s Thammasat University, Thailand. The following interview was conducted after the International Workshop on “Faith and Power”, 5-6 March 2012, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Penang, during which he presented a paper (see Event Report), arguing that violence impoverishes faith because violence is anti-politics and anti-power. As a case study he drew on Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle (1967) to analyse how public perceptions on faith and violence are constructed through the use of media images.
