Comparative & Non-U.S. Constitutional Law eJournal
Editors: Matthew Adler and Brian Bix
Duke University Law School and University of Minnesota

This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts that concern work on non-U.S. constitutional law and the comparative study of different constitutional systems. Topics to be covered include discussion of the provisions of individual non-U.S. constitutions, and how those provisions have been interpreted and applied; comparative studies of substantive provisions, interpretive methodologies, and approaches to structural and federalist questions; the comparison of systems with written constitutions with those with "unwritten" constitutions; the value of using foreign law and international law in applying constitutional rules; issues relating to multi-national constitutional rules and institutions (e.g., in the European Union); and the development of comparative constitutional law as an area of scholarship. We welcome a broad range of approaches that address these and related topics, including both doctrinal scholarship and more theoretical work grounded in economics, history, literary theory, philosophy, political science, psychology, or sociology.
