Thailand's Political and Constitutional Future with Phil Calvert and Catherine Morris Tuesday 8 November 2016 12:30 - 2:00pm Sedgewick C168, UVic As the people of Thailand mourn the death of their venerated King Bhumibol Adulyadej on 13 October 2016 after a remarkable 70-year reign, its political future remains uncertain. This seminar will consider Thailand’s legal and political future during the transition, including the legal challenges, prospects for a return to civilian government, and regional and global implications. Two CAPI Associates, former Canadian Ambassador to Thailand, Phil Calvert, and Adjunct Professor Catherine Morris will provide some background and initiate a discussion of the issues. Victor V. Ramraj, Law Professor and CAPI Chair in Asia-Pacific Legal Relations, will chair the session and launch this new roundtable series on Southeast Asia.
