Oxford University Press is pleased to announce the launch of Oxford Constitutions of the World (OCW), an online resource containing regularly updated, fully-translated English-language versions of all the world’s constitutions. The constitutions are accompanied by individual commentaries and supplementary materials, including foundation documents, historical constitutions, and amendment Acts/laws.

“Oxford Constitutions of the World provides any constitutional law scholar, academic, or researcher with the answer to their question: whether they are looking for the exact text of a particular article of the constitution, looking to compare similar provisions across the constitutions of multiple countries or jurisdictions, or seeking an authoritative commentary to every constitution in the world.”
