Why Sujit Choudhry Established the Center For Constitutional Transitions

Sujit Choudhry is an internationally recognized expert in comparative constitutional law. He is the founding director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions which consists of an international network of other constitutional law experts who work together and share their knowledge in order to create evidence-based constitutional policies that can be used by those who are decision-makers when it comes to drafting or modifying a country’s constitution. His network consists of more than 50 experts in the field that are located 25 countries around the world.

One of the main problems in the field, according to Sujit Choudhry, is that much of the information surrounding constitutional law is either outdated, unfinished, or something that has never been explored. He developed the Center for Constitutional Transitions in order to fill in these missing pieces so that the experts involved can provide the best constitutional advice that is available.
