Proportionality in East Asia

In Asia, only the courts in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and South Korea deploy Structured Proportionality (SP) , i.e the Courts reason through a structured Proportionality Analysis (PA) sequentially and they use PA to enforce constitutional rights against the government routinely and regularly. This Presentation will explore how these East Asian Courts use SP, and explain why in Asia, SP is exclusive to these three East Asian jurisdictions, while other Asian courts may have PA in form but do not use it regularly in practice.
