Chapter Summary

This article takes as its starting point recent efforts by the Korean Constitutional Court to mobilise support for the establishment of a regional rights system in Asia that is envisaged to include an Asian human rights court, akin to the design of similar systems in other parts of the world. It explains why dialogic relations between such a court and national apex courts in the would-be Contracting States are instrumental for the success of a regional rights mechanism. The article further identifies strategies that should be pursued to fashion a framework that would allow such dialogic relations to flourish. With several of these requiring institutionalisation, it is important that as and when Asian States become more congenial to the idea of an external rights monitoring system, the issue of inter-court relations is duly considered at the drafting stage.
