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.

It is important for the Constitutional Court to understand its strategic position within the dynamics of political affairs.Practical matters and requirements for submission:
