Constitutional Transitions works in partnership with a global network of multilateral organizations, think tanks and NGOs who have a track record in supporting constitution building.  Our partners are involved at every stage of our work — project conceptualization, recruitment of experts, workshops and conferences, and the drafting, publication and dissemination of research outputs.
