Recently, renowned constitutional scholar and political adviser, Sujit Choudhry, was interviewed by CEOCFO Magazine on a bevvy of issues. Chief among these issues, however, was his organization, the Center for Constitutional Transitions, or CCT. The senior editor for the magazine, Lynn Fosse, started the interview by asking Mr. Choudhry what purpose the Center for Constitutional Transitions fulfilled. Mr. Choudhry, who is both the founder and current director of the group, explained that the organization’s sole and primary purpose lay in collecting and successfully implementing constitutional policy by comparing and contrasting various different constitutions from around the world, both new and old and by consulting ceaselessly with experts in the field from across the globe. The group has partnered with over fifty leading constitutional experts across over twenty five different countries, which well attests as to their acumen.

When asked what it was that led Mr. Sujit Choudhry to fond such a peculiar and unique organization he responded that for many years his primary profession had been as a constitutional consultant, working with clients all over the world to either write up new constitutions or make positive changes to existing ones. He noticed early on that one giant hole of knowledge seemed to be utterly lacking in the field, namely, modern, constantly updated research driven, empirical data concerning the optimal paths to take during constitutional transitions and hence, the CCT was born Ist.

Mr. Sujit Choudhry lastly addressed the question of what the future holds for both his person as well as his lauded organization. He noted that, very shortly, in the coming Fall months, the CCT was going to be undertaking and likely wrapping up three massive and in-depth research ventures which were drawn up with the aid of the similarly well known International Institute for Democracy. The CCT founder believes this project will yield invaluable insights into such areas as territorial management during constitutional transitions as well as appropriate and effective measures for optimal security sector reform.
