Online tool ‘Constitute’ can help in reforming PH system
Crimes, disasters, sub-par services, civil wars & corruption scandals; these are the big problems faced by the Philippines right now which could have been caused by poor management and a lack of legal backbone. Other countries are also fighting to fix and establish systems that would work for the people and usually it starts with the constitution.
Google Ideas has brought upon a new web tool called Constitute which allows everyone to have access to constitutions around the world and have them see what a certain nation has to say about a certain topic such as “Women’s Rights” or “Technology” for example.
You can also filter your searches with dates, and once you’ve pinned an article, you may compare them with other countries. In addition, you are also able to download PDF versions of the available constitutions; it might come in handy for some lawyers & students out there.
For a fun fact, Google stated in their blog that approximately five new constitutions are written every year, and 20-30 are amended or revised. If you look at our constitution, you’ll see that it has never been amended – not even once since 1987.
