China Law Society and Japan Law Society present "Constitutional Change in East Asia: A Panel Discussion"
Constitutional reform has been on the agenda of every country in Northeast Asia in recent years. Political change in Korea, Taiwan and Japan has dampened calls for formal revision of the constitution, but important cases continue to emanate from the courts. The new Japanese government is seeking to modify the “informal” constitution of the country, while in Beijing, the government has reined in a nascent trend toward judicialization of the constitution. This panel will consider these developments in comparative and regional perspective.
