Courts and Democracies in Asia

€ 126.45


`What is the relationship between the strength of a country`s democracy and the ability of its courts to address deficiencies in the electoral process? Drawing a distinction between democracies that can be characterised as `dominant-party` (for example Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong), `dynamic` (for example India, South Korea, and Taiwan), and `fragile` (for example Thailand, Pakistan ,and Bangladesh), this book explores how democracy sustains and is sustained by the exercise of judicial power. In dominant-party systems, courts can only pursue `dialogic` pathways to constrain the government`s authoritarian tendencies. On the other hand, in dynamic democracies, courts can more successfully innovate and make systemic changes to the electoral system. Finally, in fragile democracies, where a country regularly oscillates between martial law and civilian rule, their courts tend to consistently overreach, and this often facilitates or precipitates a hostile take-over by the armed forces, and lead to the demise of the rule of law`-
