  • On my way out — Advice to young scholars VI: WeakPoint, on the uses
           and abuses of PowerPoint
    • Pages: 727 - 731
      Abstract: I have most certainly reached the final phase of my academic and professional career and as I look back I want to offer, for what it is worth, some dos and don’ts on different topics to younger scholars in the early phases of theirs. This is the sixth instalment and regards that staple of academic life: PowerPoint.

  • The morality of foreign law
    • Authors: Tripkovic B.
      Pages: 732 - 755
      Abstract: AbstractThe article explains the normative foundations of the use of foreign law in constitutional reasoning. It pursues four claims. First, it argues that a normative explanation of the use of foreign law must elucidate the connection between foreign legal facts and moral values. Second, it distinguishes between the deductive model of the use of foreign law, which ascribes value to foreign legal facts directly, and the reflective model, which ascribes value to the outcomes of the reflective process facilitated by foreign legal facts. Third, it shows how the deductive model fails to explain the value of foreign law for constitutional judgment. Fourth, the article demonstrates how the reflective model can be justified with reference to a set of virtues of good moral judgment, but argues that this model poses important limits to the use of foreign law.

  • Constitutional amendment in Laos
    • Authors: Bui N.
      Pages: 756 - 786
      Abstract: AbstractLaos, a socialist state in Southeast Asia, adopted an amended Constitution in 2015. This article investigates and explains this experience from the perspective of comparative constitutional amendment, supported by a qualitative empirical methodology: extensive formal interviews with several local constitutional amenders and informal conversations with a local lawyer and several legal scholars. It argues that Laos has introduced progressive constitutional amendments—notably, the redefinition of the position, structure, and functions of state institutions, including the imposition of term limits on executive power holders; strengthened commitment to a market economy; new commitments to human rights protection, judicial independence, and adversarial trials; and the creation of new institutions, namely, the local people’s councils, the state audit, and the election committee—to facilitate the improvement of its socialist constitutional system which in turn will promote the improvement of the material well-being of the living conditions of local people.

  • Judging constitutional conventions
    • Authors: Ahmed F; Albert R, Perry A.
      Pages: 787 - 806
      Abstract: AbstractThe study of constitutional conventions is anchored in three assumptions that have so far remained largely unchallenged: that there is a shared “Commonwealth approach” to constitutional conventions; that Commonwealth courts will recognize and employ conventions but never enforce them; and that conventions are always distinguishable from rules of law. After setting out a new taxonomy of modes of judicial engagement with constitutional conventions, we overturn each of these assumptions. We draw on recent case law from Canada, India, and the United Kingdom to show that there is no shared “Commonwealth approach” to the treatment of constitutional conventions. We show that some Commonwealth courts do, in fact, enforce conventions. Finally, we show that at least some constitutional conventions have crystallized into law. These insights disrupt much of what is foundational in the study of constitutional conventions.

  • Weak-form review: An introduction
    • Authors: Tushnet M.
      Pages: 807 - 810
      Abstract: About two decades ago Stephen Gardbaum and I noticed something seemingly new in constitutional design: the emergence of a “New Commonwealth Model” of constitutional review or “weak-form” judicial review.11 Our starting point was constitutional review under the Canadian Charter of Rights and, in particular, its theorization by Peter Hogg and Alison Bushell Thornton as creating opportunities for dialogue between legislatures and constitutional courts.

  • Interrogating dialogic theories of judicial review
    • Authors: Jhaveri S.
      Pages: 811 - 835
      Abstract: AbstractThis article critically evaluates dialogic theories of judicial review. It focuses on three main criticisms. Dialogic theories of judicial review can be criticised for being overinclusive in their application to vastly different constitutional systems; overenthusiastic in their preference for weak forms of judicial review; and overly positive in their characterization of systems as “dialogic,” ignoring the existence of interbranch conflict and instances of negative exchanges. This article contributes to this critical conversation on dialogic theories in the context of Asia, specifically Singapore and India. Recent attempts to justify these systems as “dialogic” exemplify these criticisms. The problem of overinclusiveness is easily apparent given that Singapore and India are examples of, respectively, weak and strong forms of judicial review in the common law world. The eagerness to extend dialogic analyses to such vastly different systems leads to problems. The enthusiasm to justify Singapore’s weak-form review as dialogic can potentially lead to a slowed-down advance on constitutionalism. The optimistic vision of constitutional amendments by the political branches in India following judicial review proceedings as a tool for interbranch exchange ignores the combative and tense constitutional conversations surrounding such amendments.

  • Statutory rights and de facto constitutional supremacy in Hong Kong'
    • Authors: Yap P; Chung F.
      Pages: 836 - 859
      Abstract: AbstractFundamental rights in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (Hong Kong) are protected in its Basic Law and the Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance (BORO). The Hong Kong Basic Law enshrines most of the BORO rights, thereby expressly conferring constitutional status on these rights. But there are a number of BORO rights that are not protected in the Basic Law. This article analyzes the cases in which the Hong Kong judiciary has addressed disputes concerning three exclusive BORO rights: (i) the right to participate in public affairs; (ii) the right to a fair hearing in civil cases; and (iii) the prohibition against cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment. We will also explain how the courts have conferred de facto constitutional supremacy on all these statutory rights, while simultaneously providing significant leeway and decisional space for the government to craft a considered response in their remedial legislation, thereby promoting a constitutional dialogue between the judiciary and the government on rights-protection in Hong Kong.

  • Dialogic remedies
    • Authors: Roach K.
      Pages: 860 - 883
      Abstract: AbstractRemedies have in the past and should in the future occupy a central place in constitutional theory. It is a sign of its maturity that dialogic theories of judicial review have produced new remedies such as suspended declarations of invalidity and declarations of incompatibility. Dialogic remedies, like dialogic theories in general, are vulnerable to critiques from judicial constitutionalists that they weaken the role of courts. This article responds by outlining a two-track approach to remedies inspired in part by Alexander Bickel. In the first track, successful litigants should generally receive some tangible remedy from a court, but in the second track, courts should generally defer to the superior ability of legislatures and the executive to select among a range of systemic remedies to produce better compliance with rights in the future. Such an approach follows the aspirations of dialogic theories in drawing on the distinctive and complementary strengths of judicial and political constitutionalism. The two-track approach is applied to remedial decisions involving both laws and executive actions. Examples include a Canadian decision that employed a suspended declaration of invalidity but also allowed judicial exemptions from an assisted suicide offense and South African cases that prevent evictions and provide remedies for individual students while ordering engagement to achieve systemic housing and educational remedies.

  • Is the Commonwealth’s approach to rights constitutionalism
    • Authors: Stephenson S.
      Pages: 884 - 903
      Abstract: AbstractThis article considers whether the Commonwealth’s approach to rights constitutionalism, associated with the bills of rights adopted in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK, might be suitable for other jurisdictions around the world. It argues that three questions are particularly relevant to evaluating the strength of the normative case for the Commonwealth’s approach. First, what is the nature of the disagreements about rights in a jurisdiction' Second, what options do institutions have to challenge the determinations on rights of other institutions' Third, what are the other objectives of the constitutional system' The article considers how the answers to these questions yield insights into the circumstances in which the Commonwealth’s approach may prove to be more attractive or unattractive. In particular, it suggests that the normative case for the Commonwealth’s approach may be weaker in dominant party systems.

  • The forms, functions, and varieties of weak(ened) judicial review
    • Authors: Dixon R.
      Pages: 904 - 930
      Abstract: AbstractThe concept of “weak” judicial review is now a core concept in comparative constitutional analysis. Yet the relative weakness of judicial review will depend on a variety of factors, including the availability of formal mechanisms for legislative override or limiting courts’ jurisdiction, the difficulty of constitutional amendment, the scope of judicial review both in first- and second-look cases, and the actual practice of legislators and judges in a jurisdiction. The strength of judicial review is therefore not a true binary but rather a concept that spans multiple dimensions and a question of degree rather than kind. The desirability of weak as opposed to strong or even super-strong forms of review will likewise depend on a range of factors, which can and do vary across time and different contexts. This article thus aims to unpack the concept of weak-form review with a view to sharpening our understanding of both its internal complexity and relationship to questions of broader political context.

  • Hubris, constitutionalism, and “the indissoluble unity of the Spanish
           nation”: The repression of Catalan secessionist referenda in Spanish
           constitutional law
    • Authors: López Bofill H.
      Pages: 943 - 969
      Abstract: AbstractThis article analyzes the struggles of the Catalan government to organize a referendum on secession and the constitutional framework invoked by the Spanish central authorities to prohibit it. The repression of secessionist referenda within the Spanish constitutional framework triggers several problematic questions concerning the role of constitutional supremacy in handling subnational secessionist challenges developed under a pacific and democratic framework. The article offers a comparison between the Spanish-Catalan case and other examples of secessionist referenda within liberal democracies, underscoring that the Spanish solution of repressing such referenda through criminal law is unique in the liberal democratic context. The article also offers a description of the political, historical, and legal circumstances surrounding the Spanish central authorities’ actions that explains the Spanish constitutional response to both the Catalan Consultation held on November 9, 2014, and the referendum on Catalan independence held on October 1, 2017. The article concludes by arguing that the prohibition of the Catalan referendum initiatives on independence and their subsequent prosecution through criminal law may cripple the basic pillars of the Spanish liberal democracy designed under the 1978 Spanish Constitution.

  • Hubris, constitutionalism, and “the indissoluble unity of the Spanish
           nation”: A reply to Hèctor López Bofill
    • Authors: Bar A.
      Pages: 970 - 983
      Abstract: Hèctor López Bofill’s article “Hubris, Constitutionalism, and ‘the Indissoluble Unity of the Spanish Nation’” is a subtle defense of the Catalan separatist cause and a harsh criticism of the current Spanish democratic system which he describes in quite derogatory terms as a kind of continuation of the Francoist regime, which ended in 1975 with the death of the dictator.11 In fact, although he is analyzing the present-day Catalan problem, he mentions General Franco, or the Francoist regime, eleven times in his article.
