New Comparative Law Collection on SSRN

The Social Science Research Network (SSRN) has launched a new library or collection called Comparative & Non-U.S. Constitutional Law.

According to the description:
"Comparative and Non-U.S. Constitutional Law provides a forum for posting both completed works and works in progress 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."
The SSRN is a searchable electronic library that contains abstracts, full bibliographic data, and author contact information for more than 137,000 papers, more than 100,000 of which are fulltext. It is divided into a number of specialized research networks including a Legal Scholarship Network.
