The Routledge Handbook of Constitutional Law is an advanced level reference work which surveys the current state of constitutional law. Featuring new, specially commissioned papers by a range of leading scholars from around the world, it offers a comprehensive overview of the field as well as identifying promising paths for future research. The book presents the key issues in constitutional law thematically allowing for a truly comparative approach to the subject. It also pays particular attention to constitutional design, identifying and evaluating various solutions to the issues which are involved in the design of constitutions.

The book is split into four parts for ease of reference:

  • Part One: General issues -- sets issues of constitutional law firmly in context including topics such as the making of constitutions, the impact of religion and culture on constitutions, and the relationship between international law and domestic constitutions.
  • Part Two: Structures -- presents different approaches in regard to institutions or state organization and structural concepts such as emergency powers and electoral systems
  • Part Three: Rights -- covers the key rights often enshrined in constitutions
  • Part Four: New Challenges - explores issues of importance such as migration and refugees, sovereignty under pressure from globalization, Supranational Organizations and their role in creating post-conflict constitutions, and new technological challenges.

Providing up-to-date and authoritative articles covering all key aspects of constitutional law, this reference work is essential reading for advanced students, scholars and practitioners in the field.
