Before an year ago +Google has announced a new online platform for comparing constitutions, helping improve democracy worldwide!

For an year ago +Google Ideas are supporting the Comparative Constitutions Project to build Constitute, a new site that digitizes and makes searchable the world's constitutions. Constitute enables people to browse and search constitutions via curated and tagged topics, as well as by country and year. The Comparative Constitutions Project cataloged and tagged nearly 350 themes, so people can easily find and compare specific constitutional material. This ranges from the fairly general, such as "Citizenship" and "Foreign Policy," to the very specific, such as "Suffrage and turnouts" and "Judicial Autonomy and Power." www.constituteproject.org



+Google Ideas recently announced a new online platform for comparing constitutions, helping improve democracy worldwide!  Take a look and tell us what you think. Google originally shared this



Every year approximately five new constitutions are written, and 20-30 are amended or revised. A critical part of drafting a new constitution is referencing and comparing existing constitutional documents—but until now, these documents have been hard to access. With this in mind, +Google Ideas supported the Comparative Constitutions Project to build and launch Constitute (http://goo.gl/wj3iIO)—a new site that digitizes the world's constitutions and makes them searchable by anyone.
