The Workshop will explore the relationship between constitution and civil codes, focusing attention on Asia, albeit from a broad, comparative perspective. Two themes are particularly important: (i) the structure of the relationship between constitutional (or human) rights and the private law; and (ii) the interactions between domestic institutions – the courts, the legislature, the executive – in efforts to “constitutionalize” civil codes, if any. The Workshop will depart from a traditional “conference format,” in that participants will not present papers. Instead, they have produced short texts that will help to organize our “roundtable” discussions.
