I am pleased to announce that Hart Publishing has commissioned the creation of a new series of books in the field of comparative constitutional studies.
The new Hart Studies in Latin American and Caribbean Constitutionalisms will have three co-editors who will work closely to develop the series: Carlos Bernal, a Justice on the Constitutional Court of Colombia; Catarina Santos Botelho, Assistant Professor and Department Chair of Constitutional Law at the Porto Faculty of Law at the Catholic University of Portugal; and me, Richard Albert.
We welcome book proposals from scholars of all levels of seniority.
Here is a short description of the series and its focus:
The Hart Studies in Latin American and Caribbean Constitutionalisms series publishes outstanding scholarship on the law and politics of the many varieties of constitutionalism in Latin America and the Caribbean. From single-jurisdiction and cross-national studies to inquiries into the relationship between constitutional and international law in multilevel legal orders in the region, the series welcomes submissions that identify, contextualise, illuminate, and theorise the origins, challenges, foundations, and future of constitutional law and politics in these understudied—but fascinating and important—parts of the world. Scholarship published in this series covers the range of methodologies in law and politics, including but not limited to comparative, doctrinal, empirical, historical, and theoretical perspectives. The series editors invite preliminary inquiries as well as full proposals for monographs and edited volumes in what aims to be the leading forum for the publication of exceptional public law scholarship on Latin America and the Caribbean.
