The center for constitutional transitions was formed to generate and mobilizes knowledge for the sake of building the constitution. The institution which was established by Sujit Choudhry has worked with more than 50 experts from 25 countries. It partners with global multilateral organizations and NGOs to produce evidence-based policies used in decision making. Choudhry has worked as a constitutional advisor to emerging democracies across the world. He has helped such democracies in writing of constitutions and amending existing ones. When a constitution is under translation, many issues arise. Sometimes there is no existing information on the issues, or the information is outdated or incomplete. Such lack of adequate information obstructs the effectiveness of constitutional advice hence the aim of the organization is to bridge such gaps.
According to Sujit Choudhry, the world is facing the largest challenge to the liberal democratic constitution since World War II. Choudhry who is a scholar of comparative constitutional law has lived and worked in the U.S. but has studied the world. For his latest tweets, follow him here.

In an interview with CEOCFO, Sujit Choudhry notes that one of the things he learned from working with people of different cultures is always to listen. He said that these people know what is going on and what they need. One has to quickly immerse themselves in that new environment and look at things from the local’s point of view rather than the American. He stated that his vision and approach changed and now he does not let perfect be the enemy of the good. If given unlimited time and money, Choudhry would form a new organization that hosts important constitutional case laws from across the world in multiple languages.
