So why did a workshop of this nature happen in Ukraine? The answer is simple. Ukraine belonged to the Soviet system and had a communist form of government for many years. This all ended around 20 years ago but the country has struggled to maintain a democratic system of government. Therefore, Ukraine has been facing one crisis after another since the fall of Communism. This made Ukraine fertile grounds for constitutional lawyers such as Sujit Choudhry to show up and try to fix Ukraine’s democracy issues. On a day to day governmental level the main issue facing Ukraine is that there are a lot of small political parties, a president and prime minister running things and rampant corruption. This system has all but crippled the country and there is more work to be done. Mr. Choudhry runs an organization called The Center for Constitutional Transition. Through this organization, he hopes to return to Ukraine and help out more in the future.
