The roots of National Humiliation begin to take hold during Siam’s efforts to revise the unequal treaties following World War I. Legal scholars argued that the Franco-Siamese treaty of 1893 placed crippling restrictions on the Siamese state and compromised its ability to govern effectively. This debate represents the first public acknowledgement that western imperialism had compromised the country’s independence.
