World Constitutions Illustrated (Hein Online)

Hein Online's World Constitutions Illustrated (WCI) is a comprehensive and authoritative resource for researching the constitutional law of countries around the world.

WCI brings together constitutional texts, related documents, books, articles and other sources, all related to the study of world constitutions and constitutional history. The database includes current and historical constitutions in the original language, along with multiple English translations where available. WCI is searchable, and it is possible to do a cross constitutional comparison of particular ideas or concepts.

Constitutional documents are listed in reverse chronological order, with the goal of creating a historical timeline. Each country also includes links to various secondary sources, allowing you to dig deeper into the law of one or more countries.

WCI is an ongoing project, and Hein Online plans to add books, articles and commentary over time.
