Writing Constitutions intends to serve as a practical manual for those writing constitutions or interested in their design. It is the first systematic and universal approach to coherently capture concepts and contents of a modern constitution. Volume I breaks each constitutional mechanism into components and offers detailed designs to draft a constitutional clause. This provides lawmakers with the necessary toolkit for writing constitutions and empowers them to strengthen democracies.

Writing Constitutions comes in three volumes:

  • Volume I: Institutions
  • Volume II: Fundamental Rights
  • Volume III: Constitutional Principles
