JCL- MENA is dedicated to encourage greater discussion and critical analysis of constitutional and legal developments in the MENA region. Featuring articles by legal scholars and practitioners from the region, it facilitates access to information on regional constitutional issues and debates for the global community of practitioners and scholars.
JCL- MENA is edited by the Arab Association of Constitutional Law and published exclusively online – due to the Covid-19 spread at the time of the launch - in association with the Rule of Law Program Middle East/North Africa of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.
JCL- MENA will publish two issues every year. It will also periodically publish special issues that will cover either a specific topic at the cutting edge of constitutional law or a single country undergoing significant constitutional transitions or transformations.
Established in 2013, the Arab Association of Constitutional Law (AACL) is the first regional network of constitution drafting experts in the Middle East and North Africa. AACL’s main objective is to contribute to good governance by promoting intra-regional learning. It also aims to provide objective, grounded and forward-thinking technical analysis of the region's constitutional frameworks and to apply its expertise to legal and constitutional reform efforts throughout the region.
The Rule of Law Programme Middle East / North Africa is one of five regional Rule of Law programmes of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation that support the continual exchange of experience and information between representatives of governmental institutions, legal scholars and practitioners, and civil society, on a peer-to peer basis, to support partners with expertise in achieving their reform aims. The Programme works on topics of cross-regional interest based on a long-term institutional prescence in the MENA region.
