Abstract The objectives of this article are 1) to study the decentralization and local governmentsituation in Thailand after the coup d'?tat in 2014 and 2) to investigate the direction ofdecentralization under the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand B.E. 2560 (2017).Document analysis was used for data collection. It was found that Thailand's localgovernment system has been developing for over a century. It was evident that most ofthe administrative system was based mainly on the central government with most of the localadministrators being appointed by the central government. In 1997, there was major reformunder the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand B.E. 2540 (1997). This reform can beconsidered as progress for local government in Thailand as decentralization for localadministration was clearly specified in the Constitution. In the Constitution of the Kingdomof Thailand B.E. 2550 (2007), the essential parts of decentralization were not changed andsome aspects were added.

On the other hand, central government has heldenormous power in various roles. This circumstance reflects the structural problem ofthe country which is fragmented centralism. Overlapping both in operating areas and in theirauthorities has led to many conflicts between central and local government agencies.Certainly, when the conflicts rise, the central government always exercises its authorities andpowers over local administrative organizations.
