Recently, the international law expert Sujit Choudhry sat down to discuss an organization that he recently formed. Choudhry is the founding director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions. With this organization, Sujit looks to offer knowledge in order to support the building of constitutions. The organization looks to assemble a number of international groups of experts who will be able to provide evidence-based policy options for political leaders. Over the course of the organization’s existence, the Center for Constitutional Transitions has helped many nations make improvements to their constitutional laws.
During the interview, Sujit Choudhry talked about his reasons and motivation for starting up his organization. He said that for many years, he would actively participate in advising political leaders and helping them develop constitutions that promote democracy (chronicleweek.com). Sujit would also write constitutions and amend a number of others that were currently in place. Since a number of issues come up when looking to address constitutional reform, Choudhry says that it is important to use updated research in order to make changes that benefit a given nation.
Choudhry says that he is a scholar of comparative constitutional law and spends much of his time comparing the legal systems of various nations. Sujit believes that nowadays, the world is facing a number of challenges to democratic constitutional law (iconnectblog.com). He says that the United States is facing a number of constitutional issues that many other nations are facing throughout the world. As a result, all countries including the United States will benefit by making updated changes to reform its constitution.
Sujit Choudhry has spent a number of years studying and interpreting constitutional law.
