Dr James Melton's Grant on Constitutional Excerpts Project Has Been Awarded

12 March 2013

Congratulations to Dr James Melton on his awarded grant from the Indigo Trust for the Constitutional Excerpts Project.

'The money will pay for the salary of an XML tagger, whose job it will be to cast an expert eye over constitutions from Africa and beyond to identify which parts of which constitutions relate to what. This will make it easier to find and compare constitutional provisions from places as diverse as Australia and Zimbabwe and China and Canada.'
