Pandemocracy in Asia: How far can Asian countries maintain constitutional principles in the pandemic crisis?

The paper explores how Asian countries deal with the COVID-19 pandemic by comparing the role and limits of democracy and constitutional institutions such as the legislature, executive and judiciary. There are two types of comparison. First, are there differences between Asia and the rest of the world? If so, why? Second, are there differences among Asian countries? If so, why? The aim is to explore the universality and particularities of constitutional principles in the crisis of the COVID-19 pandemic.
