Since January 2015 CPG has started the Experts Talk Series on Politics and Law. This series provides an academic platform to discuss current critical issues pertaining to law, public policy and good governance in Thailand among invited participants. Arranged at regular interval, local and foreign scholars and practitioners are invited to present their analyses, assessments and views on various fields of actual interest and engage in exchange with the audience.
The first talk of the series was held on 23 January 2015 at SD Avenue Hotel Bangkok. Presentations were made by Marc Saxer, then Resident Director of Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) Thailand and since shortly Resident Representative of FES India, Allen Hicken, Asscociate Professor at the Department of Political Science of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and Nick Nostitz, a journalist well known in Thailand for his documentary photography of Thai politics and society (see the contribution on Nick in this magazine).
