Unsettled Constitutionalism in Thailand

New Mandala just posted proceedings from a SOAS conference on Thailand. Peter Leyland discussed the inability of Thailand’s political elite to settle on a constitution. Every few years, some faction of the elite decides that the constitution doesn’t suit them anymore. Leyland argues that Thai democracy would be immeasurably better off if the political elite just adopted one constitution – a definitive “rules of the game” – and stick to it.
