Sujit Choudhry is the director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions, and he is the brain behind the formation of the center. It focuses on providing information about the advantage of shifting to a democratic form of government, and the center has a partnership with 50 experts coming from more than 20 countries who are sharing their insights about the status of a state and if it will be good for them to shift to democracy (works.bepress.com). Through the years, the Center for Constitutional Transitions has been actively visiting countries which have been under turmoil, and with Sujit Choudhry on the lead, he speaks with different governments, telling them what they should do if they decided on shifting to a democratic form of government.
Recently, the delegates from the Center for Constitutional Transitions, Sujit Choudhry included, went to the Ukrainian capital and spoke with the officials from the government. The city of Kiev is one of the most vibrant European cities, but due to the unrest in Ukraine since 2014, the city had to lock itself down, and there had been heightened security alerts all throughout the city. The delegates which were invited by the government had to demonstrate the effectivity of having a democratic constitution, and they also pointed out the advantages of shifting to a democratic system.

The government officials stated that they would need more time before they can decide for the country, and a referendum must also take place because they would have to hear what the people wanted. The Center for Constitutional Transitions respected the decision of the government officials, but they left them with some helpful information that can assist them in decision making.
Aside from the project in Ukraine, the Center for Constitutional Transitions is also actively working with the governments from Nepal to Egypt, and they are hoping that these governments would consider shifting to a more independent style of democratic government. Sujit Choudhry has a vast knowledge of international laws, and he has been studying them for so many years. He also took up degrees related to law on different schools around the world.
