Burma Constitution articles
Wow, I almost forgot to post these on the blog. First, my article for the Australian Journal of Asian Law on Burma's new constitution was finally published. Second, I wrote a brief article summarizing Burma's constitutional debates for Tom Ginsburg's Comparative Constitutions blog. In both, I argue that the new Constitutional Tribunal will likely help the government centralize control over local government bodies and help manage and update constitutional interpretations. I'm looking forward to seeing whether my predictions come true over the next few years.
