Kálmán Kinga - Szentgáli-Tóth Boldizsár: New Perspectives on Comparative Constitutional Law: Methodological Bases and Challenges - Establishing a Global Database from the Practice of Constitutional Review During the Pandemic

The present paper describes the methodological background of our ongoing research project establishing a global database on constitutional review practice during the Covid-19 pandemic. The outcome of this project will be a user-friendly, multilayered platform in English, aided by legal research and information technology instruments, facilitating the further creation of substantial scientific works. Its overall added value lies in the database’s unprecedented focus on constitutional review, with a broad coverage of countries, jurisdictions, and constitutional topics. In addition, by ensuring access to the original sources as much as possible, and owing to careful verification, all information provided in the database will be of guaranteed authenticity.
