This afternoon, CPG, in collaboration with the Asian Governance Foundation (AGF), hosted the online expert talk “The First Line of Rights Defense in Germany: The Concept of Human Dignity in the Basic Law.” It opened a series of online events in the CPG Series of Constitutional Law organizes on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the German Basic.

The event featured Professor Dr. Dr. Rainer Hofmann from Goethe University Frankfurt am Main as a speaker who explored the elements of the concept of human dignity in the Basic Law by presenting landmark decisions of the German Constitutional Court. His highly insightful discussion shed light on how the Basic Law has become a mainstay of human rights, democratic governance, and the rule of law in Germany.

We extend our sincere gratitude to Professor Hofmann and also to all participants who actively engaged and posed valuable questions during the open forum session. Special thanks go to AGF Board Members in attendance, including Pol. Lt-Gen. Suthin Khiewratana, former Commander of the Thai Border Patrol Police, as well as CPG Senior Research Fellows H.E. Kasit Piromya, former foreign minister of Thailand, and Ambassador Tomwit Jarnson.

Stay tuned for more events in CPG’s Constitutional Law Series!
