About my PhD

My PhD examined Thai Constitutionalism (legal doctrines, texts, case-law, and overall ‘constitutional culture’) in a historical and comparative perspective, deconstructing the bricolage of Thailand’s concept and practice of royal sovereignty.

Initially written in the French language, it was published or is currently under publication in French, English and Thai as shown below :

  • Le constitutionnalisme thaïlandais au prisme de ses emprunts étrangers: Contribution à l’étude de la souveraineté monarchique (Paris : Presses de l’Institut Varenne, 2018)
  • Constitutional Bricolage : Sacred Kingship vs. The Rule of Law in Thailand (Singapore : Hart Publishing, forthcoming 2020)
  • รัฐธรรมนูญนิยมไทย : ว่าด้วยประชาธิปไตยอันมีพระมหากษัตริย์ทรงเป็นประมุข (Bangkok : Fa Diao Kan, forthcoming 2020)

In 2018, the original dissertation was awarded the “Prix de l’Institut Varenne” (Democratization/Comparative Constitutional Law) and  “Prix Lévy-Ullmann” (Law & Politics) of the Universities of Paris.
