Government Gazettes Online

Government Gazettes, which are published by federal governments worldwide, are the means through which
the government can communicate to officials and the general public.
Although most countries publish a gazette, (hittar inget för sverige dock) their regularity and content varies widely, which is noted in the description of each gazette.
Gazettes are useful not only to monitor the actions of the government, but also as primary source documentation in research.

This website attempts to list all online government gazettes and their characteristics to aid researchers. A description of the contents and coverage are included for each gazette. Anyone wishing to do further research on foreign law will find useful resources in the bibliography.


  • Osäker, men borde inte "Från Riksdag & Departement" räknas som en sådan Gazette?

  • I hope "Post och Inrikes Tidningar" still exists? It was supposed to be one of the oldest newspapers of the world.

  • The description for a government gazette you give doesn't seem to fit Från Riksdag & Departement. However, under the new rules (given that the (m)-(s)-proposition gets parliamentary support) it probably will.

    However, there has been government gazettes. Until recently, there was one that reported on EU matters (published by the Foreign Office), but for some reason it was cancelled.
