Crumpton International Publication and Research Update: Brazil and Thailand

This week David Crumpton, a SSW adjunct faculty member, reported updates regarding his research and consultation activities in South America and Southeast Asia. In Brazil he has been named as a sub-grantee for a 3-year project funded by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. Working with the University of Brasília and the Federal University of Goiás, he and his Brazilian colleagues will analyze the management capacity and capability of Brazil's national health system and develop approaches to improve it. Regarding his work in Thailand, this week Crumpton and his Thai and UK colleagues published another in their series of articles that examine the political, social, and economic institutions of Thailand and how what Crumpton refers to as Thailand's 'social cage' maintains its power and control. The citation of the article is: Sripokangkul, S., Crumpton, C.D. & Draper, J. (2020). Demonization and Violence as Tools of Institutional Power: The Social Cage of Thailand.
