Center for Constitutional Transitions Director and Constitutional Law Expert Sujit Choudhry

Sujit Choudhry has served the world as a constitutional adviser for many years. His work has included amending constitutions and writing new ones especially for emerging world democracies. According to Sujit, the lack of up-to-date and adequate research slows down the efficiency of constitutional advice. Additionally, new issues arise every day for which knowledge is non-existed, outdated, or incomplete. For this reason, he founded the Center for Constitutional Transitions to fill these gaps.

According to Sujit Choudhry, the aim of the Center for Constitutional Transitions is to mobilize and generate knowledge to support constitution building. This is done by leading and assembling global networks of professionals to come up with policy options based on evidence for agenda-setting research. The Center for Constitutional Transitions has collaborated with more than 50 professionals drawn from over 25 countries.
