Abstract

This chapter looks at the theme of global constitutionalism and East Asia in a context of political economy. It raises the concern about the mutually reinforcing relationship between global constitutionalism and neoliberalism. This nexus is explained as lying in the insistence of the separation of the public and the private in both constitutionalism and neoliberalism. It is considered whether global constitutionalism’s predisposition towards neoliberalism (in the sense of a privileging of the separation of the state from the market and with that a separation of the political from the economy) would be strengthened and deepened through its extension to East Asia. Or, alternatively, could this new dialogue provide an opportunity for decolonising global constitutionalism and its political economic bias?
