The constitution is the supreme law that governs a country. It is the one that determines how politics are conducted and therefore, it will determine who the leader will be. In addition to that, it determines how different communities co-exist in the same country. The problem, however, starts when a country has a bad constitution. This situation automatically means that there will be bad politics and therefore, one cannot be sure of how messy it can get. Sujit Choudhry, one of the most recognized authorities in constitutional law and politics, such a situation can only be save when countries know how to make the best constitutions.
Researching about the future of constitutional law
In his effort to make sure that countries have the best way to come up with a constitution, Sujit Choudhry conducts regular research on this topic.
