The Article 112 Project

Over the past twenty years, the use and abuse of Article 112 to suppress peaceful expression and silence discussion of crucial social and political questions in the Thai polity has risen at an alarming rate. Despite the urgency of this rise, and the analytic questions it necessarily raises, scholarship has remained relatively spare and restriction of freedom of expression in Thailand remains unknown outside the country. The Article 112 Project responds to this lacuna by expanding scholarship and public engagement through translation, research-led undergraduate and graduate teaching and collaboration with relevant U.S., Thai, and international scholars and nongovernmental organizations. The Article 112 Project is an initiative of the Justice in Southeast Asia Lab in the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with generous support from the Anonymous Fund for the 2023-2024 academic year.
