German Basic Law and Its Influence on Thai Constitutionalism

Seminar on the occasion of 70 years of the Federal Republic of Germany and 30 years of the fall of Berlin Wall

On Thursday 19th September 2019 at Maha Chulalongkorn Building in Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha Narendiradebyavati presided over the opening ceremony of an academic seminar organised by the Thai-German Society in cooperation with the German Embassy Bangkok, Asian Governance Foundation, Centre of European Studies of Chulalongkorn University and Konrad Adenauer Foundation Thailand Office, etc, to celebrate 70 years of the foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany and 30 years of the Fall of Berlin Wall.
Upon this occasion, Her Royal Highness also delivered an opening speech indicating a long relationship and cooperation between Thailand and Germany.

In order to point out the comparative interdisciplinary aspects, the seminar assembled many highly proficient Thai experts in constitution law and background to lecture and discuss on the influences of the German constitution, which is known as ‘German Basic Law’, on the drafting process of the Thai constitution as it is realised that the German constitution remarkably influenced the 1997-version of the Thai constitution as well as to differentiate the historical backgrounds of both countries which have caused and shaped the current states of constitutionalism.
