近年來,中國的合憲性審查有所發展。 但目前的審查模式存在諸多短板,包括透明度不足、法律說理與闡釋較少、權利救濟缺失、審查機構政治地位不高等等。 在本講之中,黃明濤教授將闡述如何改進現有審查模式的不足,使之既可行、又帶來實效。 黃教授尤其主張,在人民代表大會制之下,司法過程仍然可以在合憲性審查之中扮演一種更加積極的角色。

The current mode of constitutional review in China, as is unfolded in the recent cases since 2017, has many flaws, such as the lack of transparency, the super limited scope of review and poor legal reasoning and interpretation. In this lecture, I will share my thoughts upon how to reform the current system to make it more effective and workable. Specifically, I believe there should be a role for the judiciary to play even though the National People’s Congress is the supreme body and monopolizes the power of striking down unconstitutional legislations.
