From 2020, Southampton Law School and the School of Economic, Social, and Political Sciences are the proud hosts of ‘Global Constitutionalism’ (GlobCon), an interdisciplinary journal standing for cutting edge research on human rights, democracy, and the rule of law on a global scale.

The journal offers an interdisciplinary space for addressing the foundations, limitations and contestations of the principles and norms of political order and their dynamics over time on a global scale. In the first issue of each volume, the editors critically engage with progress made and forthcoming challenges for further advancement of the field.

A broad range of disciplines are studied, including International Law, Political Science, International Relations, Comparative Constitutional Law, Comparative Politics, Political Theory and Philosophy.

To celebrate GlobCon’s transition from the WZB Berlin Social Science Center to the University of Southampton, a launch event welcomed academic researchers of the University whose work intersects with the themes of the journal. The journal releases three issues each year including original research articles and special issues. Annual scholars’ summer workshops and symposia will bring together scholars from all around the world, providing opportunity for networking and sharing ideas. The next one is scheduled for 16-17 July 2020.
