About I•CONnect

Welcome to I•CONnect, the official blog of the International Journal of Constitutional Law! 

We offer a place for real-time updates on important new constitutional cases, amendments, constitution-making efforts and other new developments. We provide a forum for thoughtful analysis of major issues in the field of comparative constitutional law. This includes discussions of new scholarship in the field, including book reviews, debates, and responses to articles that appear in I•CON. We strive to identify new voices in the field, from all over the world. I•CONnect is, we hope, a truly global forum for global public law.

We offer several regular features. These include a weekly “What’s New in Public Law” roundup, which runs every Monday and offers a rundown of new events, scholarship, and discussions involving comparative public law. We also run a biweekly column, staffed by a new selection of columnists each year, chosen to achieve a diverse range of voices and expertise. Information about the current group of columnists can be found here.

We also welcome, and depend on, unsolicited contributions to the blog, as well as suggestions for symposium topics featuring a collection of posts on timely issues. Those contributions or suggestions will be reviewed by our editorial team and should be sent to

Welcome to I•CONnect! We hope you find our blog to be a useful resource.
