The Global Community Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence (GCYILJ) is a peer-reviewed journal first published in 2001. Since then, it has become an authoritative reference on the most significant transformations in the world constitutive process. While providing researchers and practitioners with access to a uniquely rich resource for the study of international jurisprudence, the GCYILJ promotes discussion on current issues that impact substantive and procedural aspects of global law. In this way, the GCYILJ makes it possible to monitor – from year to year and from several perspectives – the development of the international order towards a legal system for a global community.
“The Global Community Yearbook of International Law and Jurisprudence has, since its founding, become the most important source of reference on global legal issues, which necessarily covers an enormous range of issues and more particularly developments before international tribunals.”
- M. Cherif Bassiouni, DePaul University, College of Law

(May 29, 2022)
Judge Cançado Trindade was a giant of international law and human rights and a leading Member of the GCYILJ’s Editorial Board for 20 years. The general editor, Professor Giuliana Ziccardi Capaldo, records his prestige, experience, and renown, his unwavering commitment to the Yearbook, and his immense legacy to the scientific community in “Antônio Augusto Cançado Trindade’s Vision for the Humanization of International Law and the Realization of Justice - A Note of Gratitude.”
As a way of honouring the memory of Cançado Trindade, there is a link to his exclusive “autobiographical essay” that he granted to this journal in 2018.
GCYILJ opens an important window for the Copernican Revolution of the international legal system, from inter-state law to law of all humanity, while tracing the emergence of global constitutional principles. It offers exciting opportunities to partake in and reflect on the continuous development and chronicling of the central concept of global constitutionalism and its interface with global governance.Look for theoretical parts
