Sujit Choudhry is the world traveled expert on constitutional law and politics. His expertise has resulted in him lecturing in over two dozen countries. Choudhry is the current Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law. His expertise is recognized by not only his students but by some of the top officials for countries all over the world.
Sujit Choudhry is the founder of The Center for Constitutional Transitions. Choudhry says he decided to create the company after he worked with countless emerging democracies all over the world as a constitutional adviser. The company connects experts from across the globe to provide advice and policy options to people in position to make decisions. The Center for Constitutional Transitions has worked in over 25 countries by providing the leaders with the knowledge needed to make well educated decisions.
Choudhry says the biggest obstacle with working in so many diverse locations is familiarizing yourself with the area and immersing yourself in the environment. Seeing things from the point of view of the citizens of a nation you are assisting is both a vital and difficult objective (patch.com).
In the Fall of 2017, Choudhry and his company completed research projects with the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance. The goal of the research was to create ways to protect the Democratic process from partisan abuse and authoritarian presence.
“We need a new organization,” Choudhry began. “[One that] organizes and hosts the most important constitutional case-law from around the world.” Choudhry believes this would be a historic change in the way democracy works. Whether he believes the UN is a broken organization or if he believes the UN should create a court-room for such proceedings is unknown. It is hard to argue that having such an organization to focus only on international law would be incredibly innovative for democracy.
