An Interview with Sujit Choudhry, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of the Center for Constitutional Transitions

Sujit was inspired to form the Centre for Constitutional Transitions by the lack of up to date research on constitutional advice. His advice to people is always to listen and stay responsive on the ground. As a lawyer, you need to quickly immerse yourself into the world of the client and look at things from the client’s point of view without assuming that you know the truth since your truth might differ from that of the client. According to Sujit, the world needs a new organization to host important cases across the world in different languages. He believes that this would change the history of constitutionalism. Professor Choudhry co-leads three collaborative research projects namely Protecting Democratic Consolidation, Security Sector Oversight, and managing territorial cleavages in constitutional transitions.  Read insights and views from Sujit on

Sujit says that the next project in the pipeline of the Center for Constitutional Transitions is launching knowledge projects in fall.
