1. Community development 2. Border security. - Tonpheung District of Bo Kaeo Province is one of the poorest areas in the Loa People's Democratic Repupublic (Lao PDR), which is one of the World's Least Developed Countries (LDCs). As the district faces major shifts from subsisitence agriculture to a market economy, many local villagers have been deeply affected and forced to adapt; some rather successfully and with strenuous- if not continuing-difficulty, Khuan Village is one site of specific and influential economic change, In hopes of participating in the neoliberal global economy, the lao PDR government has adopted a strategy of constructing Special Economic Zone (SEZs), where economic policies-unique to the rest of the country -foster economic growth. This case study investigates the SEZ in Tonpheung District and analyzes the effects of new economic enterprises on the livelihoods and quality of life of locals in Khuan Village.Most families received litle to no legal assistance in the negotialtion processes for thier land and resources; the result is that most locals did not, or feel they di not, receive appropriate compensation, This study focuses on how the amount of financial and social capital possessed by a family prior to the changes caused by SEZ policies has directly affected thier ability to adapt to these changes and form new livelihood.
