Constitutional identities and the institutionalization of transnational judicial networks

In Asia, it can be observed that efforts are underway to institutionalize networks between judiciaries, including constitutional courts. As international dialogue and research is beginning to be institutionalized among networks of these “guardians of national constitutions”, how does this affect the identities of such associations and their members? This is especially an intriguing and also significant question, when one considers the diverse range of members of transnational judicial associations. What particular fora, methods and results does collaboration within such judicial networks entail? This institutionalization of transnational judicial networks is arguably an integral aspect of the phenomenon of so-called “global constitutionalism” in the 21st century, both meriting further exploration and understanding.
