Global Constitutionalism

October 29, 2013

Currently on display on L1 of the law library are seminal publications on the development of global constitutionalism as an interdisciplinary scholarly discipline.  It dovetails the annual Global Constitutionalism Seminar held earlier at the Yale Law School. Themes explored in past seminars since its inception in 1996 ranged from freedom of speech, judicial review, and the intersection of religion and executive power, to issues on terrorism, migration and citizenship. Readings compiled by faculty members for each annual seminar can be located in the Upper East Side section of the law library under the call number K3165.A6 G56.

Related research resources and reference tools available in the law library collection include Oxford Bibliographies Online which includes an annotated chapter on the doctrinal development of the concept of global constitutionalism in the context of globalization as it became incorporated into the institutional frameworks of the United Nations, European Union and subsequently the WTO, as well as a comprehensive bibliography surveying seminal publications of the field.   For more research resources in the law library collection on world constitutions see law library knowledge base.
