Verfassung und Recht in Übersee (VRÜ) / World Comparative Law (WCL)

Michael Riegner is managing co-editor of the journal “Verfassung und Recht in Übersee / World Comparative Law” (VRÜ/WCL)

VÜR/WCL analyses developments in constitutional and public law in states and regions outside Europe and North America (in what used be called the ‘Third World’) as well as their regional and international integration. Founded in 1968 and inspired by the ideals of ‘decolonization’ and fair cooperation, the Journal also has a special interest in the entanglements between ‘Global South’ and ‘Global North’, including the presence of the ‘South in the North’. Looking beyond the surface of globalization, ‘World Comparative Law / VRU’ promotes scholarship that uncovers the particularities of legal configurations as well as their interdependencies in an interconnected world.

The journal is supported by the World Comparative Law Network, which holds annual conferences throughout Germany - 2022 in Erfurt. Read more about the annual conference under News.  You can also find more information on the homepage .
