Constitutional Political Economy is a journal on constitutional economics published by Springer since 1990. Originally triannual, it has been a quarterly since 1996.[1]

The broad subject of the journal is constitutional analysis, including papers on theoretical and empirical research and on constitutional policy issues. An editorial statement describes the journal as based in economics but explicitly interdisciplinary in inviting dialogue across a range of social sciences, including law, philosophy, political science, and sociology. It expresses a shared interest across disciplines on the integration of the study of political, legal, and moral institutions into economic analysis.[2]
