Verfassungsblog started as a single-author blog written by legal journalist and writer Max Steinbeis in 2009, covering his field of expertise and interest – constitutional law. Since then Verfassungsblog has moved on to become a forum of debate with, so far, more than 450 authors from all over the world. However, the original blog has survived in the form of an editorial column written by Max Steinbeis, the editor of Verfassungsblog, which he regularly fills with his thoughts, observations and opinions on current issues.
