Abstract

Privacy is a fundamental human right.  Many countries recognize and establish the right to privacy in their constitution.  In Thailand, the right to privacy was not recognized by people and practitioners in the past.  Thereafter, Thai constitutions have recognized and established the right to privacy.  More importantly, the current Thai constitution has still provided the right to privacy for Thai people.  Although the right to privacy has been recognized and mentioned by many Thai people, the concept and scope of the right to privacy remain unclear.  This article will mainly create an understanding of the right to privacy in Thailand.  This article will establish and develop the concept and scope of the right to privacy.  This article will examine types of privacy torts under the Civil and Commercial Code of Thailand.  An analysis will rely on types of privacy torts in the United States.  This article will also address exceptions to the right to privacy and the relationship between the right to privacy and the freedom of the press.
