The GIGA IZ publishes short bibliographies on current issues and countries:
as part of the dok-line series
on GIGA Forum events
in the journal "World Comparative Law WCL" (in German, "Verfassung und Recht in Übersee").
The bibliographies contain 30 to 100 titles from the database of the German Information Network International Relations and Area Studies (FIV) and consist mainly of journal articles, books, and online literature. The FIV is a confederation of 10 independent German research institutes.
All titles of the selected bibliographies are provided with keywords and often with abstracts. Each title’s location in German libraries or Internet address is specified.
From 2023, this service will be provisionally discontinued.
In the dok-line series, the GIGA regional libraries publish online bibliographies quarterly on current issues and countries. For bibliographies up to 2012, please use the Berlin State Library’s online code directory to check the library code.
The journal "World Comparative Law WCL" ("Verfassung und Recht in Übersee") analyses legal and constitutional developments in all states or regions outside of Europe as well as their regional and international integration. The GIGA Information Centre compiles a bibliography of relevant publications about Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Near and Middle East for each issue.
