Sujit Choudhry is an internationally recognized professor of politics and comparative constitutional law. Just recently, Sujit has written a book chapter in which he discusses several topics in relation to the prevailing political climates in several countries around the world. He explains the corrosion of constitutional democracies and the way nations are turning the system of the presidency into an autocracy. Sujit Choudhry believes that the level of disrespect for democracy has changed since the Cold War and especially in Poland. The Polish governing party, Law and Justice Party, which is a right-wing, nationalist, and populist party, has invested heavily in undermining Poland’s constitution. Since it won majority seats in parliament, the government is in a ghost hunt to remove whatever might affect its rule and ensure future victories in elections.
