Although migration of Muslims from the southernmost provinces of Thailand to Malaysia has a long history, research suggests that the intensity has increased in the past 10 years along with increased unrest in the provinces. The overall objective of this analysis is to understand how migration in the three southernmost provinces is associated with the on-going unrest and the role of gender in this process. Data will be drawn from a quantitative household probability survey (n=1,102) conducted in 2014 as well as associated qualitative data. The questionnaire included data on household characteristics, migration, experience with the unrest, and gender roles. Multivariate analysis taking into account household characteristics will be explored to determine whether migration is associated with the unrest.
