Discourse? Of Course!
Constitutional Discourse is an initiative of young researchers. We believe that we need an online platform for constructive debate of European constitutional discourse, while accepting that there are no mutually exclusive truths.
Our blog has been created and is edited by the Editorial Board. It is a free platform through which anyone can express their professional views on European constitutional issues in accordance with the editorial principles set out in our Submission Guidelines. We consider it necessary to create an impartial platform that provides space for the younger generation to express their professional positions on current constitutional, European and European constitutional issues. Of course, we warmly welcome the opinion of seasoned, experienced researchers as well; our goal is to create an intergenerational exchange of ideas that establishes a transnational bridge among scholars as well as generations. We are pleased to enjoy the support of experienced colleagues whose professional guidelines warrant the further progress of our initiative. Guided by our purpose, we asked the Advisory Board to share their experiences and support our initiative.
At the Constitutional Discourse we believe that both political and professional battles should have their own space. We would like to know what pros and cons our contemporaries and the older generations have on such and similar issues and our main goal is to provide a platform for these opinions.
With these goals in mind during the day-to-day management of the blog, we, as the Editorial Board, hope that our initiative will attract the attention of colleagues interested in constitutional and European law, and our community will be able to contribute to the development of European constitutional law through the Discourse.
Constitutional Discourse welcomes manuscripts on any European subject, primarily in the field of constitutional law. The manuscripts can be submitted in any text format at firstname.lastname@example.org. All writings posted on the blog must be between 1,000 and 2,500 words in English. Posts must be original and must not have already been published. The Editorial Board reserves the right to remove the post in case of suspicion of plagiarism.
In addition to the articles, we also publish information about the authors (bio). We do not, as a rule, publish posts anonymously. The name of the authors, and their institutional affiliations will be made public with the posts. The contact information of the author (e.g.: e-mail address) will only be published if the author intends to make it available. In view of this, we kindly ask our authors to send us their bio at the same time as their manuscript, up to a maximum of 450 characters.
We suggest using hyperlinks (inserted into the text) for professional reasons. The blog is equipped with keyword-search capability, so we kindly ask our authors to enter up to 5 keywords for the post in addition to their manuscripts.
