Publication and research - Quentin Batreau
SPD lecturer, Quentin Batreau has published earlier this year an academic article titled “Managed Informality: Regulating street vendors in Bangkok” in City& Community, a journal edited by Columbia University. The article details how the Thai administration deals with street vendors in Bangkok through the analysis of one street: Soi Rangnam. The core argument of the article is that though the vendors are “illegal”, they are in fact respecting the rules set by the local administration who has created a parallel legal system, similar in all ways to the law, and yet deeply incompatible.
