Georgetown University's dominance in the fields of international relations and political science is well-known, and they also have a number of compelling digital projects that draw on their expertise in these areas. One such project is the Political Database of the Americas, which was created and maintained by the Center for Latin American Studies. Working with the Secretariat for Political Affairs of the Organization of American States, they have created this database which includes a wide range of documents from countries located in the Americas. Within the database, visitors can look up national constitutions, judicial documents, and information on civil society. It's a tremendously helpful resource, and the materials are available in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese. As a resource for students (and teachers) of political science, political economy, or the law, it will definitely merit several return visits.
