Bitter Business of Berries The Series

The stories of Thai berry pickers

Who we are

Based in Khon Kaen, The Isaan Record focuses on social, political and environmental issues in the northeastern region of Thailand, known as Isaan.

Today, the 21 million inhabitants of the poorest region of Thailand have political and social critiques of their own, but almost no voice in popular media. By reporting on the grassroots issues of the region, The Isaan Record offers more insight into the lives of those Northeasterners who are fighting for institutional change in Thailand.
