課程概述

Theories of judicial review and democracy usually take for granted a homogeneous people, and different opinions may be compromised in the process of democratic politics. However, in some societies, especially in new democracies, social cleavage divides the people and substantially challenges the homogeneous assumption. Various social cleavages generate constitutional controversies and seek resolution from the courts. In what way social cleavages trigger conflicts and translate into constitutional issues? What roles do or should courts play in the face of social cleavage? How can the court, as a strategic actor in democratic societies, response to social divisions and political cleavage? 

課程目標
This course is designed to explore abovementioned issues through examining judicial decisions of Constitutional/Supreme courts in East Asian Countries, focusing primarily on Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. Four categories of social cleavages will be carefully examined in class discussion: electoral politics, political leadership and historical legacy, nationality and citizenship, and finally, national identity and global positioning. Our discussions would be focused on relevant judicial decisions but not limited to them. Larger social/political backgrounds and relevant legal issues particularly in comparative angles would be also included.
In addition, this course shall invite distinguished guest speakers from the region to join class discussion. Students taking this seminar for credits are required to join all course-related academic activities.
 
課程要求
This course is divided into two parts: class discussion (50%) and paper presentation (50%). Seminar members will be graded according to their involvement in both sections.
