The idea of unconstitutional constitutional amendments has diffused widely. Many constitutions make certain provisions unamendable. Courts around the world have held certain constitutional amendments unconstitutional. This symposium brings together a diverse group of international scholars to explore and expand the academic debate on unconstitutional constitutional amendments. The symposium will discuss both legal aspects and the political dynamics surrounding constitutional design, judicial review, and popular discourse on unamendability with reference to ten jurisdictions in East Asia (China, Taiwan, and Japan), Southeast Asia (Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam), and South Asia (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan).
