Introducing the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law
On 27 April 2017, Oxford University Press launched a new online service, the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law (MPECCoL), as a key research complement and application to the vast trove of primary constitutional texts and analytical commentary already available in the constitutional law family of products: Oxford Constitutions of the World and US Constitutional Law.
Overseen by the editors at the Max Planck Foundation for International Peace and the Rule of Law, MPECCoL will provide a high level of analytic coverage of constitutional law topics in a comparative context. There are currently over 570 articles planned, which are being authored, peer reviewed, and prepared for publication. The encyclopedia articles—modeled on those in the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law—address a focused range of topics that seek to provide the best coverage of the essence, character, development, and history of constitutional law from a global perspective. The new service will also include links to articles in the Max Planck Encyclopedia of Public International Law when making reference to terms covered in the latter reference work.
The following articles have been made freely available to offer further insight into the range and depth of this new resource:
Judicial Systems in Federal Systems
Legal Effect of Constitutions
Right to Access to Information
Right to Education
Right to Privacy
Suspension of the Political Rights of Prisoners
Types of Federalism
Weimar Constitution (1919)
