Sujit Choudhry is the founding director of an organization called “The Center for Constitutional Transitions.” This organization obtains knowledge to help countries that are emerging democracies around the globe (constitutionaltransitions.org). They help these countries write and update their constitutions. In some countries they simply don’t have a constitution to work with. These same countries can have many doubts or questions about how does an emerging democracy begin to write a constitution? Sujit Choudhry and his organization can help give assistance and guidance in these matters.
Choudhry is a scholar in the field of Comparative Constitutional Law. He feels that the form of government known as Liberal Democratic Constitutionalism is under a state of stress and transition not seen in the world since the the era surrounding the Second World War. The idea of The United States being the best country in the world is beginning to be questioned within The United States and around the world. What is happening in The United States is also happening in many other Constitutional Democracies around the world. Sujit Choudhry thinks that the Constitutional Democracy of The United States and other such countries need to look at their successes and failures so that they can learn from one another and improve their situations.
