[UPCOMING EVENT] International Conference "The Constitutional Justice and Democracy" in Korea
Since its foundation in 1988 based on the people’s aspiration for true democracy, the Constitutional Court of Korea has contributed to the development of democracy and promotion of fundamental rights through a number of decisions for the past 30 years. In the meantime, systems of constitutional justice, although differ in forms, have also served an important role in strengthening democracy in many countries across the globe. Under the main theme of “The Constitutional Justice and Democracy”, the conference provided a stage for us to share our precious experiences and wisdom. As we believed, this conference served as a meaningful opportunity for us to review how constitutional justice has contributed to democracy, and discuss ideal constitutional justice systems for the continuous advancement of democracy.
