The 19th KPI Congress, 2017

The 19th KPI Congress, 2017

King Prajadhipok's Institute organized the 19th KPI Congress from 10-12 of November, 2017 under the topic of "Thai Democracy and New Challenges: The Ideal, Reality and Prospects”.For the three-day period, it has been found that Ideal Democracy or True Democracy is an important assumption. The constitution can bring about resolutions and lead to Consolidated Democracy or Sustainable Democracy. Ideal or True Democracy should be adaptive democracy that will not spoil itself but maintain its balance. In Reality, both domestic and international findings have revealed that sustainable democracy for the sake of society is not only involving politics, but the focus should also be on three main aspects: economics, politics, and civil rights. Elections should be seen as necessary, but not the only aspect to sustain democracy. In terms of Prospects, the Thai society has hopes of moving toward democracy by believing in the principles of democracy, accepting imperfections, and being patient to learn and find solutions together. At last, Thai people must strive to lead the society to the happiness of the people on the path of democracy. Another important thing is that democracy should be seen as the common will among people in the society.
