The world of politics is usually impassive and filled with people who are detached from their work. But not Sujit Choudhry, the leader and Founding Director of Center for Constitutional Transitions.
In the article from the CEO CFO website, we read an elaborate interview with Sujit Choudhry that shows his passionate attachment to his work and what he has been through with the project that he does with the commission that he started.
The main aim of the group that he started is to make sure that there are enough knowledge and data for every country to use when they build the constitution of any state (https://works.bepress.com/sujit_choudhry/).
By assembling a team of experts and think tanks, Mr. Sujit Choudhry hopes that he can arrive at the best decision, set of solutions and framework that would fit the right constitution for that state.
Right now, Mr. Sujit is in partnership with more than 50 experts, NGOs, and major multinational organizations just to ensure that the clients or countries they’re serving get the right constitution that has to be formulated (constitutionaltransitions.org).
Why Sujit Started The Foundation
In the same interview, we learned, too, that the main aim of Mr. Sujit in starting the organization was the desire to help countries make sure that the constitution they make is fit to the needs of the citizens. It should be bottom-up, instead of top to bottom.
A constitution has to make sure that all the needs of the country, including the different factors that may challenge the construction of an effective one, would be addressed and factored in.
Mr. Sujit has been a constitutional advisor for many emerging democracies, writing new constitutions and amending the already existing ones of different countries. With his expertise, he’s able to fill the gap that’s needed to make sure that a constitution stays strong (medium.com)
