This is the second in a 4-volume set that provides the definitive account of the major issues of comparative constitutional law in Asian jurisdictions.

Volume 2 looks at constitutional amendments and offers answers to questions about the formal rules for amending the constitution such as:

  • Who initiates an amendment proposal?
  • How is the amendment proposal adopted?
  • How are the amendments codified?

and the neo-institutional questions regarding amendment practices such as;

  • Why is the constitution amended?
  • Who engages in the amendment process?
  • How does the amendment affect the political system and the society?

Volume 2 covers 17 Asian jurisdictions including: Bangladesh, Cambodia, mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, North Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Thailand.
