MFN Legal Briefing: Thailand’s Tightrope: Lèse-Majesté Laws & Their Media Implications

24 November @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The Media Freedom Network (MFN) is a solidarity network for freedom of expression movements in Southeast Asia. 

Thailand’s lèse-majesté laws have long been a focal point for champions of freedom of expression. These laws, which deem criticism or insult of the monarchy a crime, cast a significant shadow over media freedom and journalism within the nation.

In light of recent events, where passionate activists such as Tantawan Tuatulanon have confronted the severe implications of lèse-majesté laws, the urgency to cast a spotlight on these legal restrictions has never been more profound.


What are Thailand’s lèse-majesté laws and how do they impact media freedom?

What are the challenges faced by journalists and media outlets in Thailand?

What has been done to address the challenges and what can we do?


Join us with Thai Lawyers for Human Rights (TLHR) for the MFN Legal Briefing: “Thailand’s Tightrope: Lèse-Majesté Laws & Their Media Implications” on Friday, 24 November at 3pm ICT/4pm MYT to answer your burning questions!

This online event will be conducted in English, and is supported by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). Attendance is by invitation only.
