The Functional Transformation of Courts: Taiwan and Korea in Comparison
Editors: Jiunn-rong Yeh, National Taiwan University
Publisher: National Taiwan University Press, V&R unipress

The global expansion of judicial powers makes no exception to Asia. Most noticeable is the judicial expansion in tandem with unprecedented political and legal reforms that have occurred in the two Asian new democracies – Taiwan and South Korea. Having shared a great deal of similarities in colonial legacy, economic development and global competition, both Taiwan and South Korea became good examples of fast-growing economies with successful democratic transitions. In the context of transition, Courts in Taiwan and Korea are expected to independently resolve disputes, to place checks and balances on political powers, and to safeguard people’s rights and freedoms. This book looks into court’s function in constitutional, regulatory, civil, commercial, and criminal matters by making Taiwan and Korea in comparison.
台灣與韓國在經濟、社會與政治的發展,有若干相似之處,例如殖民背景、經濟的崛起、民主化的時間點、面對過去威權統治的轉型正義等議題,而使得台灣與韓國成為社會科學領域比較研究的重鎮。因此本書邀集臺灣與韓國的各領域學者專家,撰文討論憲法、民法、經濟法、行政法與刑法議題,透過台韓兩國的法律制度與法院判決,分析法院在不同領域所展現的角色與功能,並以此貫串台灣與韓國法院發展的主軸,包括現代化、民主化、經濟發展、法院與法律繼受等,以深入思考法院於不同社會中所展現的樣貌。本書由德國V&R unipress出版社及臺大出版中心出版共同出版。
