Global South in Comparative Constitutional Law
This week, our partner journal Verfassung und Recht in Übersee (VRÜ) / Law and Politics in Asia, Africa and Latin America celebrates its 50th birthday with an international conference on “The Global South in Comparative Constitutional Law” in Berlin. This conference is accompanied by this online symposium also featured on the blog of the International Association of Constitutional Law. The symposium is not only intended to make the conference presentations and debates accessible to audiences outside Berlin. It is also an occasion to reflect more specifically on the relationship between international law and comparative constitutional law through the historical lens of the VRÜ journal. The journal’s online archive, freely accessible and searchable, offers a treasure trove of historical materials on 50 years of scholarly engagement with legal developments outside Europe and North America.
