German-Southeast Asian Center of Excellence
for Public Policy and Good Governance
The German-Southeast Asian Center of Excellence for Public Policy and Good Governance (CPG) is an academic institute and think tank as well as a provider of advisory services and facilitator.
Built upon the cooperation between four universities – Thammasat University, Frankfurt University, Münster University, and Passau University – we are a joint institute attached to the Faculty of Law of Thammasat University in Bangkok.
We conduct and publish research, organize academic events, consult and advise public and private stakeholders, and offer various services for students, scholars and alumni.
Our focus is on areas such as constitutional law & human rights, security & peace studies, and governance & compliance. We are committed to combine theoretical understanding and practical experience.
We pursue an interdisciplinary and comparative approach with a strong regional focus on Southeast Asia.
