Aim and Scope. UJCL aims to create a platform for the dissemination of high-quality content on the problems of constitutionalism, especially for the Ukrainian reader. The latest developments and original ideas, trends in the science of constitutional law, which are crucial for the current development of the constitutional state in Ukraine, are in the focus of our attention.
Ukraine not only defends its state sovereignty and territorial integrity, but also works on building institutions, based on the ideas of constitutionalism – human rights, democracy, and rule of law. We provide scientific support for these processes in cooperation with the state authorities of Ukraine (including the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, the Constitutional Court of Ukraine), as well as international partners (including the OSCE).
The journal edits original research on constitutionalism and related disciplines, including Constitutional law, Comparative constitutional law, Political science, Theory and philosophy of law, European and International law. Interdisciplinary studies that focus on theoretical and practical constitutional and legal issues are welcomed.
