About the Rule of Law in Thailand Project

In the SOAS’ Centenary year, the Centre of East Asian Law (‘CEAL’) at SOAS, University of London is pleased to launch the Rule of Law in Thailand Project. The project seeks to engage academically with rule of law definitions and legal issues in contemporary Thailand such as constitutional changes, justice system, human rights as well as broader issues that affect social ordering from family law to environmental protection. Its aim is to encourage research on law in Thailand, including supporting the efforts of early career researchers and PhD candidates who are working on issues relating to the rule of law and Thailand.
