The Melbourne Forum on Constitution Building in Asia and the Pacific brings together practitioners and scholars from across Asia and the Pacific to share their experiences of constitution building. All speakers at the Forum have been directly involved in the processes of constitution building in their respective states and polities. The Forum provides an opportunity for understanding the experiences of different states, in depth discussion of shared issues and challenges, and meaningful comparison across the region.
The Melbourne Forum on Constitution Building is organized under the auspices of the Constitution Building Programme of International IDEA in collaboration with the Constitutional Transformation Network at Melbourne Law School. This year's Forum is hosted by the Department of Political Science of the University of the Philippines Diliman. It will be held on 3-4 October 2017 in Manila, Philippines.
