The working paper on Kaantabay has been published online. This is originally a thesis chapter and was presented last November 2011 as a compulsory requirement for PhD students affiliated with the Asia Research Centre. It was one of my first attempts to think politically, after enormous patience and support from the supervisors, especially Dr. Jane Hutchison. This chapter has since evolved into three chapters on the program’s political economy, written from May to September this year. This would not be the first as getting serious with one’s work entails being courageous in sharing and establishing one’s side of the ‘truth’.
