Who is Professor Sujit Choudhry?

The globally recognized authority on comparative constitutional politics and law, Sujit Choudhry, spends a lot of his time putting into motion the ideas which he pens in the paper. Choudhry has put into print over 100 articles, book chapters, reports and journals, and despite his comprehensive research agenda, he manages to spend a great deal of time in the field. For over two decades now, this scholar has been a constitutional advisor and has spoken in many countries.

He is the director and founder of the Center for Constitutional Transitions and has spearheaded the constitutional building in countries like Jordan, Libya, Egypt, and South Africa. His latest consultation was with the Government of Ukraine in Kyiv, where he led discussions around the table with other world’s top constitution experts to scrutinize the semi-presidential system of the country’s government and its constitutional challenges.

In early 90s Sujit Choudhry’s research topics included reviews in social and health sciences, from making end-of-life decision to consent and hospital guidelines. In 1999, however, the scholar’s global ideas expanded into the political landscape. He came up with polarizing ideas such as a constitution design to govern countries as they transit from violent turmoil to nonviolent democratic politics; a constitution design for societies divided ethically, decentralization, federalism, constitutional courts, to mention but a few. He has also written on Canadian constitutional law extensively.
