Editorial - '2019 Global Snapshot' Symposium


Erika Arban and Tom Gerald Daly


Just over a year has passed since the official launch of the new-look IACL-AIDC Blog in Seoul, and to celebrate this important milestone we thought it would be nice have a ‘Global Snapshot’ Symposium offering an overview of constitutional law developments in various regions of the world: in other words, what has happened in the first half of the year and what is coming in the second half. This symposium collects a mixture of regional reviews and country-case studies, to offer the reader a global overview of constitutional events around the globe. It’s a reflection of our Mission Statement produced for last year’s launch, to be “a truly global blog that serves all areas of the world”.

We hope you’ll find this symposium useful and enjoyable, and many thanks to everyone who has contributed to such a successful re-launch!

Erika Arban and Tom Gerald Daly
