Rémi Nguyen has been awarded in November 2014 a Ph.D Contract with International mobility at CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research or in French, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) for three years with the support of the CREDIMI in Dijon, France (Research Centre on Market and International Investment Law or in French, Centre de Recherche sur le Droit des Marchés et des Investissements Internationaux) and the IRASEC. Even though, the topic of his thesis is mainly focusing on Burmese Civil Law, he also had to closely consider different other laws from the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) during his research.

At the end of the public defense which took place on Thursday, July 5, 2018, he obtained his Ph.D with the very honorable mention and the unanimous congratulations of the jury. The subject of the thesis was on the codification of civil law in Burma. In it, Rémy Nguyen explained how Burmese law has always had an inextricable link with the concept of codification and why a Civil Code is currently appropriate in Burma in order to address the difficulties related to legal security and political unity in the country.
