Citizenship refers to men as political animals having rights and freedom to join in political affairs of a community and the state. Born in Greece over 2,000 years ago, it then had to wait till the Renaissance era and capitalist society when economy grew and citizens’ roles expanded. In Thailand, unfortunately authoritarianism has ruled for a long time making weak political parties and also weak local self-rule. Strong citizenship is thus much needed both by educational and political reform.
