The AIDC-IACL Blog has entered a new partnership with the Journal Law and Politics in Africa, Asia and Latin America (Zeitschrift Verfassung und Recht in Übersee; VRÜ)). The main aspect of the partnership will be the Journal editors' selection of one article from each of the Journal's quarterly editions to be converted to a blog post and featured on the Blog. Other collaborations may also be pursued under the partnership, by mutual agreement. 


The Journal "Law and Politics in Africa, Asia and Latin America" (Zeitschrift Verfassung und Recht in Übersee; VRÜ)) analyses legal and constitutional developments in all states or regions outside of Europe as well as their regional and international integration. Founded in 1968 and inspired by decolonization and the idea of a cooperative new beginning, the Journal also promotes a special interest in contributions on 'Law and development'. The journal aims to provide a forum for a variety of perspectives on these fields of interest, be they focused on one country or comparative, theoretical or methodological in nature.

Next to extensive articles, the journal publishes shorter reports about current events or conferences as well as book reviews. As a special service, each issue of "Law and Politics in Africa, Asia and Latin America" contains an international bibliography of relevant publications from around the world. This is compiled in cooperation with the Leibniz-Institute for Global and Regional Studies in Hamburg (GIGA). 

"Law and Politics" addresses authors and readers on all continents and aims to serve as a forum of mutual exchange. The journal is open for contributions from legal and social sciences as well as for analyses from practitioners.

All manuscripts go through a double-blind procedure of peer-review.

The journal is published quarterly and welcomes contributions in German, English, Spanish and French.
