Seminar

Referendum 2024 and the Way to Constitutional Amendment

Seminar Series on Democratization

Thailand's 2017 Constitution has been a subject of controversy due to its origin under the military junta. The demand for its amendment was central to the 2023 general election and the 2020-2021 mass protest movement. According to a study approved by the cabinet, a series of three referendums are required to gauge public opinion. Amending the Referendum Act, B.E. 2564, is seen as a crucial first step toward facilitating constitutional amendment.

Discussion

Roundtable Discussion with German MP: Strengthening Economic Security

European and Southeast Asian Perspectives on Navigating the New Normal in Global Supply Chains

In recent years, international supply chains – the backbone of global commerce – have encountered unprecedented challenges. The shift towards protectionism marked by the "America First" policies of the Trump administration, including the US-China trade war, was just the beginning of a process at play since 2017. Then, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic dealt a significant blow to global supply chains, disrupting transport lines and production cycles worldwide. As the global economy was still grappling with the aftermath of the pandemic, Russia's invasion of Ukraine triggered direct disruptions in supply chains, compounded by a sanctions war against the aggressor that catalyzed pre-existent attempts to reshape supply chains away from the West. These events have accelerated changes and reshaped global supply lines.
