The Living Repository of the Arizona Constitution

Home / AZ Constitution

The Living Repository of the Arizona Constitution will be a new public resource for the study of Arizona’s founding charter and its development.

A project of the Center for Political thought and Leadership within the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at Arizona State University and ARTIS International, and in collaboration with the Quill Centre at Pembroke College in the University of Oxford, this project will allow citizens and scholars alike to better understand Arizona's unique contribution to constitutional democracy.

The public will have a new searchable, digital repository of Arizona's constitutional development, allowing citizens and researchers to draw connections between the official public record, newspaper accounts, and other archival material in new ways. By including previously undiscovered material submitted by Arizona citizens, the new repository will be the definitive site for understanding how the Arizona constitution emerged.
