This Master Thesis investigates changes in Thailand's foreign policy towards its neighbouring country Burma. It argues that Thai foreign policy towards Burma has experienced major changes during four periods between 1945 and the present. The thesis investigates these foreign policy changes during the four periods. What changes occurred? What were the reasons for the changes? What reasons dominated during what periods? The four periods of Thai foreign policy changes towards Burma and the common history of the two countries since their respective foundations does not suggest a stable peaceful relationship or a bitter hostile relationship leading to war. Instead it has been found that both internal and external reasons have affected the Thai foreign policy towards Burma and made it very vivid over time. The thesis concludes by evaluating these changes together with the author's own thoughts about the prospects of future changes in Thai foreign policy towards Burma. (Less)
