There are many theoretical experts on peacemaking who have thoroughly studied about peace processes of many conflict areas in the world, particularly in Southeast Asia. Professor Zachary Abuza is one of them who is also foremost expert on international terrorism. For a long time, he has also been closely monitoring the violence and conflict in Deep South of Thailand. Recently, Professor Abuza has an in-depth study about peacebuilding in the Indonesia's Aceh, the Philippines's Mindanao, and Deep South of Thailand (or Patani), comparatively identifying individual cases as the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. He summarizes some of his study's remarks in a short article and gives it to Deep South Watch specifically. This is the the article from a well-known professor on terrorism, peace and conflict, which is timely when it comes to the slowly moving on peace dialogue in Thailand's Deep South.
