Government: Comparative Constitutions Project Launches New Online Reference Resource
This new reference resource comes from the Comparative Constitutions Project (CCP) with funding from Google (specifically, Google Ideas).
On the Constitute site you can read, search/browse and compare constitutions for countries of the world.
Browse by country or topic. You can also download datasets direct from the CCP web site (link below).
From a Google Blog Post:
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.”
