The Max Planck Encyclopedia of Comparative Constitutional Law provides analytic coverage of constitutional law topics in a comparative context. The encyclopedia articles address a focused range of topics that seek to provide the best coverage of the essence, character, development, and history of constitutional law from a global perspective.

In addition, articles provide insight and detail into key cases that have contributed to or defined constitutional law concepts on a global scale, and discuss key instruments in constitutional law history such as Magna Carta and the Charter of Medina, among others.
