Welcome to the website on Party Law in Post-Transitional Latin America. This site supports research on the legal regulation of political parties in post-1978 Latin American democracies. It contains a searchable database of the legal references to political parties in all Latin American constitutions since independence, a collection of all the laws regulating political parties since the region's transition to democracy, and related publications.
The map on the right provides an inventory of all Latin American party laws currently in force. Click on a country for an overview of its party laws.
