  • Understanding the third wave of judicial review: Afterword to the Foreword
           by Doreen Lustig and J. H. H. Weiler
    • Authors: Versteeg M.
      Pages: 10 - 16
      Abstract: In this short essay, I respond to the Foreword article by Doreen Lustig and Joseph Weiler. This important article maps three subsequent waves of judicial review: (1) courts ensuring that domestic laws conform to the constitution; (2) courts ensuring that domestic laws conform to international law, and (3) courts re-asserting the primacy of the constitution over international law. The article’s most important contribution is the mapping of the third wave, which is a response to the growing importance of international law in domestic legal orders, and entails national courts scrutinizing the constitutionality of international law along with the emergence of a judicial discourse that emphasizes national identity.This response focuses on the nature of the third wave. Specifically, while I believe that the third wave is important and real, I develop two slightly different hypotheses about its nature. My first conjecture is that some features that Lustig and Weiler regard as part of third wave are so closely connected to the second wave that they might not represent a new wave at all. Specifically, while the importance of international law in domestic legal orders has increased, the vast majority of countries have long had constitutional safeguards in place to ensure the primacy of the domestic constitution. As a result, when courts review the constitutionality of international law, they are not doing anything new or unusual: they are merely fulfilling their long-standing constitutional duty. My second conjecture relates to the causes of the third wave. While Lustig and Weiler argue that the discourse of the third wave emerged in response to the problems of the first two waves, I hypothesize that it might instead reflect broader social change. Specifically, as populist movements have been swept into power by appealing to nationalist rhetoric, courts may be responding to these larger societal trends.

  • Judicial review and democratic resilience: Afterword to the Foreword by
           Doreen Lustig and J. H. H. Weiler
    • Authors: Ríos-Figueroa J.
      Pages: 17 - 23
      Abstract: This commentary focuses on the relationship between judicial review and democratic resilience, a key challenge within the contemporary “third wave” in Lustig and Weiler’s dialectic dynamic of judicial review. Making use of examples from the Latin American region, I suggest that variations in levels of judicial independence, accountability, and responsibility can help us distinguish between the legitimate use of “voice” and different types of “exit” from the practice of judicial review or even constitutional democracy. The commentary also advances some more general thoughts as to the precise role that courts and judicial review can play in buttressing constitutional democracy in an age of populism and stringent sovereignty claims.

  • On Einsteinian waves, international law and national hats: Afterword to
           the Foreword by Doreen Lustig and J. H. H. Weiler
    • Authors: Çalı B.
      Pages: 24 - 30
      Abstract: This article offers a critical reading of Lustig and Weiler’s Foreword article by focusing on the emphasis placed by the authors on the phenomenon of international judicial review and the hierarchical reception of international law by domestic judges as the core features of a second wave of judicial review, interacting with judicial review under domestic laws, characterized as the first wave of judicial review. It first asks whether we can abstract a general wave of international judicial review from the broad range of judicial decisions of international courts and tribunals and proposes that there may be much less international judicial review in the international system than proposed by the authors to make a wave. Second, it holds that where we have international judicial review, such review does not necessarily promote the idea of the hierarchy of international law over domestic law. There are different ways of being an internationalist and a hierarchical positing of international law has always been one option of many. In conclusion, I hold that these two critical inquiries into the second wave have repercussions on the reactionary framing of the third wave of judicial review. Reactionaries, and there are plenty, may be taking issue not only with international law as hierarchical law but also with the very idea of international law or even some basic tenets of public law.

  • Asian exceptionalism' Reflections on “Judicial Review in the
           Contemporary World”: Afterword to the Foreword by Doreen Lustig and J.
           H. H. Weiler
    • Authors: Chang W.
      Pages: 31 - 39
      Abstract: This article provides a dialogue with the “three waves” development of judicial review as described by Lustig and Weiler in their Foreword article and examines whether these three waves are global in nature. As this article finds, the first two waves have been quite unsettling and contested in Asia. The first wave of judicial review, in which judges can rule against legislation on constitutional grounds, has seen variations in a few Asian jurisdictions. The second wave of judicial review, in which judges can rule against the exercise of all governmental powers on transnational normative grounds, has been confronted with strong resistance in Asia right from the very beginning. National struggles for identities and fierce competitions for voices in the global legal order have been challenging Asian states, and as a result, “politicization of higher values” on both domestic and transnational grounds may persist in Asia for the foreseeable future.

  • Is the European Commission a credible guardian of the values'A
           revisionist account of the Copenhagen political criteria during the Big
           Bang enlargement
    • Authors: Janse R.
      Pages: 43 - 65
      Abstract: During the Big Bang enlargement (1997–2004) the European Commission was responsible for preparing 10 countries from Central and Eastern Europe for membership of the European Union. To achieve this aim, the Commission had to explain the meaning of the Copenhagen political criteria, which required candidate countries to achieve “stability of institutions guaranteeing democracy, the rule of law, human rights and respect for and protection of minorities.” Academic analysis has delivered a negative verdict on whether the Commission succeeded in explaining to candidates what the political criteria meant. This received wisdom undermines the credibility of the Commission’s current efforts to safeguard the values vis-à-vis Poland and Hungary. But was the Commission’s work really so deficient' This article looks back at the Commission’s view on the meaning of the Copenhagen political criteria during the pre-accession period. It concludes that while the Commission’s work was far from flawless, it articulated a clear vision on the core meaning of the political accession criteria, and strongly criticized policies which have become the hallmark of Poland’s and Hungary’s current illiberal governments. The current policies of Hungary and Poland can and should be assessed in terms of the commitments made to the Copenhagen political criteria during pre-accession.

  • Sovereignty and the common good
    • Authors: Duke G.
      Pages: 66 - 88
      Abstract: This article develops an argument for the value of state sovereignty based on its capacity to promote the political common good. My claim is not of course that the common good is always promoted by state sovereignty but rather that state sovereignty possesses features particularly conducive to the promotion of the common good. Although this may sound like a modest claim, its truth is sufficient to undermine the view—held by many constitutional pluralist and cosmopolitan theorists—that sovereignty has little at all to recommend it from a normative perspective. The article is structured in three sections. Section 1 briefly defines state sovereignty, before setting out two constraints on a successful argument for its value. In section 2 I demonstrate why an argument based on services to the common good is well placed to meet these constraints. Section 3 argues that the value of self-determination—which features prominently in many normative defenses of state sovereignty—ultimately derives from the common good.

  • Taming regressive constitutional amendments: The African Court as a
           continental (super) Constitutional Court
    • Authors: Abebe A.
      Pages: 89 - 117
      Abstract: The African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights has the required substantive basis to function, and has in fact shown the willingness to operate, as a constitutional court for Africa. The Court has invalidated not only laws but also a constitutional provision as incompatible with relevant continental and sub-regional standards. The article argues that this extensive power of the African Court has implications for the empowerment of domestic constitutional courts to review the substantive validity of constitutional amendments. In combination with other constitutional and popular mechanisms of control, such an empowerment would constitute an additional veto point to stymie self-serving efforts undermining fundamental constitutional principles, so common in the African context. The express judicial empowerment and regulation of the review of constitutional amendments would allow constitutional designers to define the scope of the power, identify the enforceable substantive limits, and establish procedural and decision rules cognizant of the higher level of political consensus underwriting amendments. Counterintuitively, therefore, the recognition of domestic judicial review of constitutional amendments would limit judicial venture into constitutional politics.

  • Parliamentary war powers and the role of international law in foreign
           troop deployment decisions: The US-led coalition against “Islamic
           State” in Iraq and Syria
    • Authors: Ruys T; Ferro L, Haesebrouck T.
      Pages: 118 - 150
      Abstract: This article addresses the degree of parliamentary involvement in decisions to deploy armed forces abroad. It observes how the recourse to force by the US-led military coalition fighting against the so-called Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIL, or Da’esh) in Iraq and Syria seems to fit into a broader trend of increased parliamentary control over war-and-peace decisions on both sides of the Atlantic. Inasmuch as international legal arguments can and do play a role in parliamentary debates and concomitant resolutions, this trend carries the potential of contributing to the compliance pull of the jus ad bellum. Against this background, the article explores to what extent newfound war powers on the part of national parliaments go hand in hand with recourse to international legal arguments. The article engages this question through an analysis of the dialogue between the executive and legislative branches in a number of countries (in particular Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Canada) pertaining to the participation in the US-led coalition against IS.

  • Federalism, development and the changing political dynamics in Ethiopia
    • Authors: Fiseha A.
      Pages: 151 - 176
      Abstract: In the last two and half decades, Ethiopia has undertaken remarkable political and economic changes at the center of which is the transformation of the country from a highly homogenizing and centrist rule to a federal system that aims to manage the country’s complex, politically mobilized ethnonational diversity. Ethiopia continues to register impressive economic performance but at the same time is facing political instability. This article seeks to explain two major paradoxes: Why has the federal system, with its promise of self-rule that ensures autonomous self-government and representation in federal institutions, not been able to ensure political stability, and how does one explain the emerging protests and uncertainties' Two factors explain the puzzle. The idea that development is centrally designed and managed along with the identification of poverty as an existential threat against which all resources have to be mobilized means that development takes an overriding priority thus compromising self-rule. While federalism and the developmental state are two major pillars of the EPRDF-led government, they have not been aligned well, as the latter became an overriding ideology.The outcome as witnessed in the latest protests is new mobilization and conflict unleashed by growing ethnonationalism. The vanguard party that has monopolized political power and overshadowed the institutions also sidelined the political opposition while emboldening hardliners leading to political instability.

  • ASEAN and Janus-faced constitutionalism: The Indonesian case
    • Authors: Jing Xi G.
      Pages: 177 - 204
      Abstract: This article addresses the phenomenon of dual constitutionalism, using a case study on Indonesia that presents a double conundrum. The first facet of this conundrum is that the Indonesian president can constitutionally ignore the views of the Constitutional Court and the House of Representatives regarding the highly sensitive subject of energy policy and instead write policies in response to perceived political or economic necessity. The second facet pertains to the fact that Indonesia’s energy policies ultimately converge with “soft” ASEAN norms and diverge from its own Constitution, jurisprudence, and legislation. This article argues that this conundrum has emerged because Indonesia operates a dual constitutional system. This dual constitutional system comprises two spheres of legislative action, which are legally and politically autonomous from one another. There is a presidential system of decision-making committed to economic liberalism, whose main checks are those of international law. There is, also, a parliamentary system whose main checks are provided by electoral politics and the constitutional court. This dualism forms part of the Indonesian constitutional identity through two means. First, it provides a platform for the enactment of the continuing ideological conflict between economic liberalism and economic democracy. Second, the dualism is maintained by a constitutional abeyance, a “suspended irresolution,” which none of the actors seek to resolve, lest they cause a constitutional crisis.

  • The effects of ASEAN treaties in domestic legal orders: Evidence from
    • Authors: Phan H.
      Pages: 205 - 229
      Abstract: This article examines the effects of ASEAN treaties in the Vietnamese legal system. It demonstrates that, in addition to modifying domestic laws, ASEAN treaties, especially those adopted to promote regional economic integration, could also influence the domestic legal order by changing current administrative procedures, introducing new administrative mechanisms, and improving the overall operation of government agencies. This process may not be immediately discernible from an examination of changes in domestic laws; however, once the inquiry is broadened to include details of treaty implementation via administrative procedures, the impact of treaties comes into sharper focus. This impact of treaties on administrative procedures, while relatively easy to overlook, may represent the most important portion of the impact of ASEAN treaties on Vietnam’s legal order. More broadly, it also illuminates a larger point about the indirect, more subtle, and less visible influence that international law may exert on national law and procedures.

  • Freedom of expression, the right to vote, and proportionality at the
           European Court of Human Rights: An internal critique
    • Authors: Zysset A.
      Pages: 230 - 251
      Abstract: This article offers an internal critique of the European Court of Human Rights’ deferential approach to the content and limits of the right to vote (under the right to free and fair elections, article 3 of Protocol 1 to the European Convention on Human Rights). Rather than imposing an independent theory of democratic rights, the critique is internal as it relies on the Court’s own conception of democracy developed under article 10 ECHR (freedom of expression) and article 11 ECHR (freedom of reunion and assembly). It uses normative democratic theory to show that the Court’s conception under those rights reveals an utmost concern for political inclusion and that this conception is systematically used by the Court to balance alleged interferences with this article. It then argues that this concern has implications for the Court’s review of the right to vote. While the Court proclaims the complementarity between expression and vote at the level of principle, the Court refrains from engaging in the balancing exercise under P1-3. The article takes the notorious example of the right of convicted felons to vote. The article does not conclude, however, that the Court should systematically maintain its franchise on democratic grounds. It rather contends that the Court should apply proportionality with the same substantive democratic principles across democratic rights.

  • Judicialization in authoritarian regimes: The expansion of powers of the
           Chinese Supreme People’s Court
    • Authors: Ahl B.
      Pages: 252 - 277
      Abstract: Over the past two decades courts in China have undergone tremendous changes as they developed into more professional and efficient institutions for solving legal disputes. Whereas the literature has described the empowerment of Chinese courts as “intrinsically local,” we turn to the national level and explore how the development of the Supreme People’s Court (SPC) relates to the global phenomenon of a “judicialization of authoritarian politics.” Drawing on legal documents and secondary literature, the study argues that the SPC has extended its powers gradually and in a non-confrontational manner into the realms of other constitutional actors. The court has expanded its competences primarily through its legislative function and its substantial input into procedural law reforms. As the court serves core interests of the party, the empowerment appears rather instrumentalist and reversible. However, the SPC is in a position to promote its own agenda by indicating deference to core party goals and, in exchange, being granted certain leeway to pursue its institutional interests.

  • Judicialization in authoritarian regimes: A reply to Björn Ahl
    • Authors: Lin Y.
      Pages: 278 - 287
      Abstract: It is an honor to be invited to have a dialogue with Prof. Björn Ahl. First of all, I wish to congratulate him for his deep and profound investigation of the recent developments of the Supreme People’s Court of China (SPC). I don’t dispute most of the keys points that Prof. Ahl has presented to us, including the Qi Yuling case, the judicial interpretation power, and the mandatory death penalty review by the SPC, as well as other related issues. However, I would like to highlight Prof. Ahl’s following points: (i) the SPC “grew” its powers in a non-confrontational manner; (ii) such a “growth” serves the ruling party’s interests; and (iii) the “growth” is both instrumentalist and reversible. What has not persuaded me, however, is the main argument that all those above-mentioned changes amount to a significant expansion of the SPC’s powers. It is apparent that the attribution to these changes is also compelling enough. In this context, I therefore, cautiously cast my doubt regarding this article. I will first challenge the methodology that Prof. Ahl has applied and then respond to his key expansion arguments. I then provide a brief conclusion.

  • The republican core of the case for judicial review
    • Authors: Hickey T.
      Pages: 288 - 316
      Abstract: This article makes the case for judicial review based on the idea of freedom as non-domination. It is a democratic case for the institution, rooted in Philip Pettit’s republican account of democracy as “equally shared popular control.” It is also a legitimacy-based and non-epistemic case—it does not rely on Rawlsian/Dworkinian ideas around the special wisdom or the special virtue of judges. The article thus accounts for the main concerns of political constitutionalists. In fact, building as it does on Richard Bellamy’s insights in particular, it is itself a political constitutionalist case for judicial review. It diverges from Bellamy, however, in its conclusions about judicial power. This divergence emerges from a particular understanding of how common goods might emerge over time in a democratic society. Following Pettit, the article emphasizes a long-term perspective on that question, and suggests fluid, iterative processes toward that end—processes that account for and embrace disagreement among citizens. The article holds that non-electoral contestatory institutions play a necessary role in such processes. And it holds that there are good reasons why judicial review—and, in principle, judicial supremacy—might be understood as one such institution. These reasons are good in part because they are non-epistemic: they do not conflict with the fact of reasonable disagreement on rights questions.

  • The republican core of the case for judicial review: A reply to Tom
           Hickey. Why political constitutionalism requires equality of power and
           weak review
    • Authors: Bellamy R.
      Pages: 317 - 328
      Abstract: Political Constitutionalism (hereinafter PC)11 deployed the version of republican theory developed by Philip Pettit to argue against not only the liberal democratic case for legal constitutionalism and judicial review put forward by John Rawls and Ronald Dworkin but also Pettit’s own purportedly neo-republican version of a similar argument,22 along with those of other writers who adopted neo-republican arguments of a slightly different kind, such as Jürgen Habermas, Cass Sunstein, and Frank Michelman. PC contended that for all citizens to be equal under the law in a manner consistent with freedom as non-domination, the law and legal system had to be under their equal influence and control in ways that could only be achieved through an appropriate form of democracy. This form of democracy would need to possess certain constitutional qualities, such as the impartial and equitable treatment of all interested parties. In particular, it required the institutionalization of a balance of power of a kind that encouraged both citizens and their representatives to “hear the other side,” and so be moved to decide collective policies in ways that addressed their “commonly avowable interests” and thereby treated all citizens with equal concern and respect. I suggested that parliamentary representative democracies, involving free and fair elections between competing parties and employing a system of majoritarian voting, had many of the requisite features.

  • The republican core of the case for judicial review: A rejoinder to
           Richard Bellamy
    • Authors: Hickey T.
      Pages: 329 - 331
      Abstract: The case I make for judicial review avoids what I, among others, see as the basic flaw in most of the justifications that have been offered previously.11 It does not rely on the notion that judges are more enlightened than legislators in respect to the resolution of rights questions. It does not hold that judicial insight is such that, with judicial review, outcomes are more likely to treat individuals with equal concern and respect. This means that the “fact of reasonable disagreement on rights” objection cannot be leveled at my case in the way that it can be leveled at legal constitutionalist cases. The republican understanding of democracy upon which I build my case not only accounts for this fact of disagreement, it relies quite heavily on it. In turn, my case relies on that fact of disagreement.
