Adding Value to the Constitutional Building Process

Posted by TroPe on

On July 10th 2017, Sujit Choudhry joined a team of distinguished constitutional experts to discuss the Ukrainian semi-presidential system. This workshop got organized by different significant stakeholders from Ukraine, who gave their valuable contribution from their different domains of specialization, ranging from human rights to members of the legislature, and even academia. This workshop was an important exercise held by these dignitaries for the country, and all their input was needed given their wealth of intelligence and experience.

The Center for Constitutional Transitions, where Sujit Choudhry is the Director, is the body which works to bring together knowledge from experts and make it available to others for purposes of constitution building. The Center does this by bringing together experts from around the world in fields relating to constitution building, and the knowledge generated from such forums helps to guide decision-makers in their endeavor to craft a constitution which is thorough and well thought out.  More about him on blogs.law.nyu.edu.

The inclusion of these experts in his activities has increased the efficiency of the operations of the Center, where they help in all stages of designing of the constitution. The fact that they come from many different parts of the world serves to ensure the constitution has a broad perspective.
