Western liberal constitutionalism has expanded recently, with, in East Asia, the constitutional systems of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan based on Western principles, and with even the socialist polities of China and Vietnam having some regard to such principles. Despite the alleged universal applicability of Western constitutionalism, however, the success of any constitutional system depends in part on the cultural values, customs and traditions of the country into which the constitutional system is planted. This book explains how the values, customs and traditions of East Asian countries are Confucian, and discusses how this is relevant to constitutional practice in the region. The book outlines how constitutionalism has developed in East Asia over a long period, considers different scholarly work on the ease or difficulty of integrating Western constitutionalism into countries with a Confucian outlook, and examines the prospects for such integration going forward. Throughout, the book covers detailed aspects of Confucianism and the workings of constitutions in practice.

Rule of law is one of the pillars of the modern world, and widely considered necessary for sustained economic development, the implementation of democracy and the protection of human rights. It has however emerged in Western liberal democracies, and some people question how far it is likely to take root fully in the different cultural, economic and political context of Asia. This book considers how rule of law is viewed and implemented in Asia. Chapters on France and the USA provide a benchmark on how the concept has evolved, is applied and is implemented in a civil law and a common law jurisdiction. These are then followed by twelve chapters on the major countries of East Asia, and India, which consider all the key aspects of this important issue.

This book of text, cases and materials from Asia is designed for scholars and students of constitutional law and comparative constitutional law. The book is divided into 11 chapters, arranged thematically around key ideas and controversies, enabling the reader to work through the major facets of constitutionalism in the region. The book begins with a lengthy introduction that critically examines the study of constitutional orders in 'Asia', highlighting the histories, colonial influences, and cultural particularities extant in the region. This chapter serves both as a provisional orientation towards the major constitutional developments seen in Asia – both unique and shared with other regions – and as a guide to the controversies encountered in the study of constitutional law in Asia. Each of the following chapters is framed by an introductory essay setting out the issues and succinctly highlighting critical perspectives and themes. The approach is one of 'challenge and response', whereby questions of constitutional importance are posed and the reader is then led, by engaging with primary and secondary materials, through the way the various Asian states respond to these questions and challenges. Chapter segments are accompanied by notes, comments and questions to facilitate critical and comparative analysis, as well as recommendations for further reading.The book presents a representative range of Asian materials from jurisdictions including: Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, South Korea, Sri Lanka , Taiwan, Timor-Leste and the 10 ASEAN states.

English summary: The Festschrift for Christian Kirchner honors a most exceptional academic teacher and researcher on his 70th birthday, who, most recently while during his nearly twenty year activity as a professor at the Humboldt University of Berlin, made extensive contributions to the fields of legal and economic scholarship. In particular, Prof. Dr. Kirchners work has been critical in the development of modern economic law, especially the competition regulation law and he was of the leading minds of the economic theory of law before he unexpectedly passed away in January of 2014. For such an honoree, countless prestigious authors from Germany, Switzerland, the USA and Asia as friends, companions, students and colleagues have put together a collection of essays that discuss the central problems and themes from Prof. Dr. Kirchners field of scholarship. The central focus of the essays are economic and social law, antitrust legislation, the law and economy of regulation and institutional economic. The essays mostly relate to European and international themes and frequently adopt an economic point of view. German description: Mit der Festschrift fur Christian Kirchner sollte ein auaergewohnlicher akademischer Lehrer und Forscher zu seinem 70. Geburtstag geehrt werden, der in seiner die Rechts- und Wirtschaftswissenschaften umfassenden Laufbahn, zuletzt wahrend seiner fast 20-jahrigen Tatigkeit als Professor an der Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin, entscheidend zur Entwicklung des modernen Wirtschaftsrechts, insbesondere des Wettbewerbs- sowie des Regulierungsrechts, beigetragen hat. Er gilt als einer der fuhrenden Vordenker der Okonomischen Theorie des Rechts. Uberraschend ist der zu Ehrende am 17. Januar 2014 verstorben. Das Werk ist daher seinem Andenken gewidmet. Fur die Festschrift haben zahlreiche renommierte Autoren aus Deutschland sowie unter anderem der Schweiz, den USA und Asien als Freunde, Weggefahrten, Schuler und Kollegen Beitrage verfasst, die sich mit Problemen aus den zentralen Arbeitsgebieten des zu Ehrenden wissenschaftlich auseinandersetzen. Schwerpunkte der Beitrage bilden das Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsrecht, Kartellrecht, Recht und Okonomie der Regulierung sowie Institutionenokonomie. Dabei wird meist ein europaischer oder internationaler Bezug hergestellt und haufig eine wirtschaftswissenschaftliche Sichtweise gewahlt.

Is liberal democracy appropriate for East Asia? In this provocative book, Daniel Bell argues for morally legitimate alternatives to Western-style liberal democracy in the region. Beyond Liberal Democracy, which continues the author's influential earlier work, is divided into three parts that correspond to the three main hallmarks of liberal democracy--human rights, democracy, and capitalism. These features have been modified substantially during their transmission to East Asian societies that have been shaped by nonliberal practices and values. Bell points to the dangers of implementing Western-style models and proposes alternative justifications and practices that may be more appropriate for East Asian societies. If human rights, democracy, and capitalism are to take root and produce beneficial outcomes in East Asia, Bell argues, they must be adjusted to contemporary East Asian political and economic realities and to the values of nonliberal East Asian political traditions such as Confucianism and Legalism. Local knowledge is therefore essential for realistic and morally informed contributions to debates on political reform in the region, as well as for mutual learning and enrichment of political theories. Beyond Liberal Democracy is indispensable reading for students and scholars of political theory, Asian studies, and human rights, as well as anyone concerned about China's political and economic future and how Western governments and organizations should engage with China.
