ELI Forges Closer Ties with the Asian Legal Community


On 5 November 2019, a delegation from the Constitutional Court of the Kingdom of Thailand was welcomed to the ELI Secretariat in Vienna by the ELI President and Secretary General.

The delegation included Punya Udchachon (Judge of the Constitutional Court), Kanokwan Chamachoti (Director of the Division of Constitutional Research and Development) and Boonserm Nagasara (Constitutional Officer). 

ELI President, Christiane Wendehorst, and Secretary General, Vanessa Wilcox, informed the delegation about the Institute, its aims, structure, projects (in particular the project on Common Constitutional Traditions in Europe) and research processes. Participants held fruitful discussions on possible further cooperative avenues. 

The ELI is pleased to observe a growing interest in the Institute’s work from other regions of the world and looks forward to knowledge exchange with stakeholders from different legal traditions.
