A new episode of KickBack: The Global Anticorruption Podcast is now available. In this week’s episode, I interview Torplus Yomnak (who uses the English name Nick), an assistant professor of economics at the Chulalongkorn University Faculty of Economics in Bangkok, Thailand, as well as the co-founder and chief advisor of the HAND Social Enterprise, a Thai civil society organization focused on anticorruption and good governance issues. He is also one of the recipients of the U.S. State Department’s 2021 “International Anti-Corruption Champions” awards. In our conversation, Nick and I discuss his efforts to combine academic anticorruption research with practical real-world projects, as well as the main corruption challenges and opportunities facing Thailand today. You can also find both this episode and an archive of prior episodes at the following locations:
