A Great Advisor for Countries Undergoing Constitutional and Political Crisis

Sujit Choudhry has spoken in over twenty-four countries over issues to deal with constitutional law and politics. He recently attended a workshop that was organized by a team of experts in the field of legal laws in Ukraine. The experts that were present in the workshop came from various institutions like the international institute for democracy and electoral assistance. To Choudhry, this was a humbling experience to be around executive powers and discuss Ukraine’s democratization, which has been in turmoil for over twenty years. This has majorly been due to the splitting of executive powers between the president and the prime minister.

According to Choudhry, in the recent past, a large number of countries that are seeking to change their democratic protocol have been making distinct changes in their constitution. It is important that the leaders meet and discuss the various options that are available to them that with enough proof can be seen to be in their best interest in the reform process. Choudhry has written a lot of literature about the Canadian law and over ninety other articles.

Sujit Choudhry due to his extensive knowledge is now a law professor in the University of California. He was previously a lecturer of law at the University of New York and also worked in the University of Toronto.
