Screen Shot 2013-09-23 at 9.21.11 AMGoogle wants to help the countries of the world write their next constitution.

With a new project called Constitute, the search giant aims to make it easier to understand the world’s constitutions by creating a searchable, digitized database of every one. In addition, it has partnered with the Comparitive Constitutions Project to tag and categorize sections of the constitutions, so that it’s possible to search by topics, like the right to bear arms or how a country’s courts are structured.

According to a post on the Official Google Blog, the company wants Constitute to be a resource to help countries draft better constitutions, and help citizens better understand their constitution and those of other countries.

“Our aim is to arm drafters with a better tool for constitution design and writing. We also hope citizens will use Constitute to learn more about their own constitutions, and those of countries around the world,” the company writes.

Check out a video announcing the new project below.
