Indonesian Constitutional Court International Symposium (ICCIS 2018)

On 1-3 October 2018, the Indonesian Constitutional Court will hold its 2nd International Symposium. Reflecting on its first successful event in Surakarta on 2017, the Court aims to provide an annual academic forum to discuss various constitutional issues. Selected articles from the Symposium (based on peer review decision) will be on the special issue of the Court's academic publication, Constitutional Review (CONSREV) Journal, published by the Center for Research and Case Analysis, the Indonesian Constitutional Court.

“Constitutional Court and Constitutionalism in Political Dynamics”

The establishment of the Constitutional Court is often underlined with the need to elaborate the concept of a democratic state based on the rule of law and the idea of constitutionalism. In carrying out its functions, the Constitutional Court can affect the political structure and political institutions. On the other hand, the roles of the Constitutional Court may also be influenced by the political game. It is important for the Constitutional Court to understand its strategic position within the dynamics of political affairs.
