How Sujit Choudhry Is Building Constitutional Government

The Professor Of Constitutional Law

As a Rhodes Scholar and a graduate of universities throughout the Western world, Sujit Choudhry is well versed in constitutional law. This expertise has allowed him to work as a professor of law at several North American universities including the University of Berkeley and the University of Toronto. While serving as a professor. He has taught courses discussing constitutional governments across the world and the various ways they seek to solve their issues within their societies.

Lending Advice To Developing Nations

Outside of the academic setting, Choudhry has extensive field experience as an advisor to various developing nations aiming to create their own constitutional governments. South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Ukraine are just a few of the countries that he has advised. In 2011, during the Arab Spring, he advised a number of government reformers on how to create constitutions to prevent the former abuses suffered under totalitarian regimes. Choudhry’s work does end with advising nations. He is also an active member of various NGOs and uses the knowledge he’s acquired to help these NGOs develop a better world for all.

His Latest Projects

Currently, he is involved in 3 research projects. These projects focus on the various security issues surrounding emerging constitutional governments. As the Arab Spring has proven, movements to create entirely new governments are not always successful. At times, internal struggles and actos aim to either maintain authoritarian power or establish a new totalitarian government to replace the old one. Choudhry is using these projects to understand how to ensure that countries can safely transition to constitutional governments and what signs indicate there are possibly issues involved.

Choudhry As An Author

Sujit Choudhry is also an accomplished author with a number of books discussing constitution building already published. A particular strong area of interest for Choudhry is the development of new constitutional governments. Recently, Choudhry announced plans to release a new book under the Oxford University Press discussing the constitution of India. He intends for this book to serve as a handbook to help readers understand how the government of India operates.
