     Abstract This paper investigates the dynamics of constructing a social network for livelihoods in a rural community in the Lower ISAN region of Thailand. The qualitative approach was adopted in the study. Group interviews were used to collect data from 15 key informants who were community leaders and community seniors, and this data was used together with non-participatory observation. The research area was a community named Preeng village, where the community had experienced socio-economic changes over a number of decades. Primary data was analysed using the content analysis method. The results explored how a social network was formed informally, through exchanges of natural resources and the kinship system, in the settlement period. Decades later, a social network was formed, brought about by migration due to drought in the rural area, as many villagers decided to seek work in the fishing industry. Currently, a social network has been formed within the contract farming system, between rice farmers and the middlemen of the rice mills, in order to advance their own interests. Keywords: household livelihoods, livelihoods, rural community, and social network
