Verfassungsblog is an academic and journalistic open access forum of debate on topical events and developments in constitutional law and politics in Germany, the emerging European constitutional space and beyond. It sees itself as an interface between the academic expert discourse on the one hand and the political public sphere on the other.
Verfassungsblog is a space for legal and political controversy and debate. Opinions published on this website are not necessarily shared by the Verfassungsblog editors/publisher/partners.
The blog timeline is the centrepiece of Verfassungsblog. It is where we publish expert analyses and comments on topical events and developments in constitutional law and policy, usually on a daily basis.
In our blog symposia, scholars put cutting-edge research up for discussion. This is probably the “most academic” section of Verfassungsblog in the sense that it collects and depicts scholarly debate on a given topic.
In our weekly editorial, founder and chief editor of Verfassungsblog Maximilian Steinbeis comments on whatever constitutional law issue is on everyone’s lips – or which isn’t but should be.
Our podcast Verfassungspod began as expert interviews but has evolved into a deep dive into specific legal issues of topical relevance. In this new format, each episode is comprised of several parts.
