Welcome to Oxford Constitutions of the World

Oxford Constitutions of the World (OCW) is the only resource to contain fully-translated English-language versions of all the world's constitutions (both national and sub-national), accompanied by individual jurisdictional commentaries, and supplementary materials, including foundation documents, historical versions of constitutions, and amendment Acts/Laws.

Subscribers also benefit from access to the Oxford Law Citator, one of the most powerful tools available for legal research, enabling onward research and ease of access to key materials.


Brexit has dominated both British and international headlines for much of the last few years, and yet little is currently known about the shape it will eventually take. With so much left to be determined, we are establishing a blog series from expert Oxford University Press authors that will illuminate different aspects of the process as the picture evolves.  

The first blog, which comes from Professor Federico Fabbrini, is now live - read it on the hub today.
