In an interview with CFO Magazine, Professor Choudhry explained that the role of the Center for Constitutional Transitions is to establish an international panel of experts who develop viable policy options to assist countries in the transition to a stable and constitutional form of government.

Professor Choudhry identified a need for this organization as he was advising developing countries in constitution building and he found that many significant legal and policy questions had no clear or up-to-date answers. Sujit Choudhry believes that his body of work is not only relevant in emerging countries; as Americans cease to define themselves as exceptional to other countries and they recognize that they are not immune to the legal and political challenges to democratic institutions, they will engage in more comparative thinking in facing the reality of these challenges. He eschews the notion that the truth in these areas is limited to the way Americans perceive it.

Professor Choudhry emphasized how he enjoys considering other people’s points of view, especially those that are “on the ground” in a particular political environments. He attributes his professional success, to a large extent, to the fact that he has navigated new legal and political environments his entire life. His immigrant background has taught him to appreciate varying perspectives and situations and the need to approach public policy issues from multiple angles.
