Abstract

Since 2000, Thailand's judiciaries have decided the fate of polls, politicians, political parties and policies. Such frequent incursions into uncharted political waters signals a tide of new and largely opaque activities that scholars refer to as "the judicialization of politics." This dissertation provides an account of the judicialization of Thai politics through an examination of the Administrative Court of Thailand. It focuses on the particular actions of both judges and plaintiffs as necessary to explain the phenomenon. In addition, this study attempts to examine the effects of the judicialization of Thai politics upon not only the immediate parties involved in disputes but also expands beyond to cover larger political, social and economic questions.
