What happens to liberal democratic constitutions during a severe financial crisis? How does such an event affect their nature, their practice, and their enforcement, particularly where such constitutions are relatively new? In this chapter, I seek answers to these questions through empirical analysis of the experience of the states in Southeast and East Asia over the last quarter century (1990-2013), eliciting both quantitative and well-rooted qualitative evidence.
