Sujit Choudhry is an educator and author who is known mainly for his expertise in dealing with matters related to comparative constitutional law and politics. Recently, he wrote a chapter in the book Constitutional Democracy in Crisis? and pointed out some very interesting occurrences in the chapter. In the past, he has served as a constitutional advisor who has worked with emerging democracies. He has also helped to make amendments to constitutions which were already in place and has worked to write up drafts for new constitutions.
In the book, Sujit Choudhry addressed concerns that the world is currently facing threats to constitutional democracies. He also commented on different political events that have appeared to cause a shift away from constitutional democracies and joined other writers in the cause within the book. The book specifically takes on these kinds of concerns in a very heads-on way and also addresses immigration, globalization, equality of income, nationalism, and other important and relevant topics. The book received a lot of praise and has been called groundbreaking by some.
Sujit Choudhry found it particularly important to focus in on a tweet by the former Attorney General of the U.S.A. The tweet stated that firing Bob Mueller or tampering with his office would be a red line of sorts that shouldn’t be crossed. It went further to claim that there should be a massive effort by the people to hold peaceful demonstrations that support these things. Sujit Choudhry found the tweet by Eric Holder to be disturbing and pointed out that the tweet suggests that people should not follow constitutional law.
Sujit Choudhry is the founder of the Center for Constitutional Transitions, which is an organization that is responsible for compiling knowledge related to the building of constitutions. The organization has made a lot of headway and has worked with a spread of universities, large organizations, and think tanks to better define constitutional law. Sujit Choudhry has also served as a constitutional advisor and has helped countries to better formulate their constitutions. The world is lucky to have a mind such as his focusing on some of the most pressing issues in today’s world.
