Brining constitutional law to emerging democracies is a critical job that can help bring stability around the world. Now, one constitutional exert reveals the smartest path to bringing constitutional order to countries who wish to transition to democratic order. That expert, Sujit Choudhry, revealed his insights.
In a recent interview, constitutional expert Sujit Choudhry talked about his organization Center of Constitution Transitions. When asked about the idea for the Center of Constitution Transitions, Mr. Choudhry answered that the center helps create constitution building by putting together a team of experts who can then create a working policy for a transitional government.

When asked about the founding of his organization, Mr. Choudhry answered that, while working as a constitutional advisor to emerging democracies (constitutionaltransitions.org), new questions and challenges would arise. Creating a center would allow constitutional policymakers to stay on top of the latest research in constitutional advice. This, in turn, would lead to more effective policymaking.
Mr. Choudhry was asked about how his vision has changed over time. The constitutional law expert answered that trying to look for perfection in every policy-making project could be an impediment. Instead, Mr. Choudhry treats every setback as a challenge and works to find a workable solution that may not be perfect but would be workable for all parties involved.
During the interview, Mr. Choudhry was asked what he would do if his center had unlimited funds. Mr. Choudhry answered that he would create a larger organization that would host all the important constitutional case-law. And that these cases could be tried and heard in multiple languages. This idea, Mr. Choudrhy believes, would have a radical impact on constitutional law.
