About the speaker

Claudia Liu holds a LL.M. from Chulalongkorn University, Thailand and a LL.B. from Peking University, China. Claudia is a JSD Candidate and prior to joining UNHCR she had worked as a Lecturer in Law at Rangsit University and Visiting Lecturer at Thammasat University.

Claudia’s field of interest is in the relativity between human rights and statelessness. Through her project on “Protection of Statelessness in Thailand: Is Human Right the Ceiling?” she aims to explore the suitable scope of human rights interpretations that can provide better protections toward stateless persons.

In addition to her interests in statelessness, Claudia has also been experimenting with alternative activities that can enhance the legal education classrooms in Thailand. She is also the creator and illustrator of her cartoon character - 'The Ghetto Pigs'.
