The current feature story is an IAR seven-part video interview with Nelson Rand, a Canadian journalist based in Bangkok covering insurgencies and political protests in Thailand for six years, who was wounded earlier in the summer. Rand is a graduate of the Master of Arts – Asia Pacific Policy Studies program at UBC.

In the video, Rand discusses who the Red Shirts are, the difficulties in initiating reconciliation following the conflict, and the assistance he received as he recovered from his wounds.
