  Venice Commission - Commission de Venise
The Commission therefore decided in 1992 to set up a documentation centre to foster a mutual exchange of information between the courts and to inform the interested members of the public about their decisions.
Three times a year, they contribute to the Bulletin on Constitutional Case-Law and the database CODICES of the Commission which are the core of the Commission’s Centre on Constitutional Justice together with the library and the ‘Venice Forum’ allowing for a quick exchange of information between the courts on current issues.
The establishment of the Joint Council on Constitutional Justice in 2002 institutionalised this cooperation between the constitutional courts and the Venice Commission, further underlining the important role of the participating courts in the Commission’s activities.

Mr Smith was hitting out at the provisional recommendations made by the constitutional reform commission in relation to the transmission of citizenship from a Bahamian woman to her foreign spouse - one of the most controversial issues of constitutional reform when it was originally presented to the public by the former FNM administration.
The commission in its report said that there was overwhelming support for equity between the sexes and for the removal of any form of discrimination on the grounds of sex or gender, especially with regard to the ability of a married Bahamian woman to transmit citizenship to the child born outside the Bahamas.
The commission also recommended that the constitutional provision that children born outside of the Bahamas to married Bahamian men have automatic Bahamian citizenship should also apply to children born outside the Bahamas to married Bahamian women, regardless of the nationality of their husband.

 Sudan: Memorandum to the National Constitutional Review Commission - Amnesty International   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
The Interim Constitution itself will not be sufficient to prevent human rights violations; however, strong constitutional guarantees for the respect, protection and promotion of human rights, would be a powerful tool to prevent further human rights abuses in Sudan and usher a new era for the protection of the human rights of all in Sudan.
The human rights guarantees in the 1998 Constitution of Sudan were consistently diminished by the restrictions in the Penal Code of 1991, which was not brought in accordance with the constitutional guarantees, or laws passed subsequently to the 1998 Constitution, often consisting of presidential decrees.
The Interim Constitution should require the State to take positive measures in all fields to ensure the full development and advancement of women, including measures to ensure that traditional, historical, religious or cultural attitudes are not used to justify violations of women’s rights.

The primary aims of the Constitutional Commission are four-fold:-
The political process is inadequate and inappropriate for such a major rethink, partly because it tends to be self-serving and opportunistic, but also because it has not shown itself able to think constitutionally and strategically, which is precisely the kind of thinking that Scotland most needs at this point in her history.
This is important because the 1989 cross-party Scottish constitutional convention, which led the last national conversation about devolution, had the authority to draft a constitutional blueprint which became the Scottish parliament.

Instead of regularly informing the public about the outcome of its work on Serbia’s new constitution, conducted within several sub-commissions, the Constitutional Commission behaves as if it has been deliberating house rules, rather than a fundamental system of law that affects every individual.
The procedure for passing a constitution is unambiguous and clear-cut, and implies public participation and transparency, i.e.
The Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Serbia, the Civic Initiatives and the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights – YUCOM express their concern with such flagrant violation of democratic procedure and demand that passing of a new constitution should be postponed so as to enable all strata to engage in a debate on it.
