(p.223) 10 Conclusion
Constitutional Dialogue in Common Law Asia

Po Jen Yap

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes the book. It notes that each sub-constitutional tool, as discussed in the proceeding chapters, may be placed on different points of a spectrum that measures the ‘robustness’ of the judicial review associated with its deployment, yet every one of them is dialogic in nature as each of them leaves legislative space, to varying degrees, for the lawmakers to respond actively, as opposed to merely passively yielding, to the judiciary’s determination of rights. It is emphasized that this constitutional dialogue between the co-ordinate branches of government should be viewed as a constitutional blessing, and not a bane, for it conjoins the best in both statecraft and adjudication.

Keywords:   dialogic judicial review, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, sub-constitutional rules, common law Asia
