Workshop Report: Constitutional Design in North and South Korea

In February 2021, the National Committee on North Korea (NCNK) virtually convened a group of international experts to consider the commonalities and dis-commonalities between the constitutions of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and of the Republic of Korea. Thirteen scholars with specialties in constitutional design, constitutional law, and Korean law participated in the conference, aiming to compare the constitutional structures of the two Koreas and the underlying assumptions behind them. 

This report aims to summarize the findings of the conference, reflecting the discussion on several key thematic areas of comparison. The report does not necessarily reflect the views, in whole or in part, of any individual conference participant.
