From 2001 to 2006, Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra transformed Thailand’s international role from one of obscurity into a kind of regional hegemon. Thaksin was accused of exploiting foreign policy to enrich his business empire. Thaksin’s reinvention of Thailand as an up-and-coming regional power was therefore tainted by conflicts of interest and the absence of ethical principles in the country’s foreign policy.
