Verfassungsblog is a journalistic and academic 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.

The blog has been founded in 2009 by Maximilian Steinbeis, a legal journalist and writer. The work of Verfassungsblog is supported by strong institutional partners: the Center for Global Constitutionalism at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center, the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law (MPIL) in Heidelberg and the Law in Context research network at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

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.
