In order to tease out the narrative detail behind such overarching issues as corruption, state capacity, public goods, the education sector and political economy in the Thai case, this thesis questions the impact of corrupt transactions on collective goods provision. Focusing on the education sector, it answers the following sub-questions: How does Thai public sector corruption reduce government revenue allocated to education, and what is the impact on quality and equity? What influence, if any, do corrupt or ambiguous transactions bear on the following components of the current reform effort: teacher development and conduct; teacher recruitment, appointment and promotion; student-centred learning and shadow educational systems; and procurement?
