When it comes to comparative constitutional law and matters of politics, Sujit Choudhry’s know-how is exemplary. The professor has garnered himself this vast array of knowledge through years of research, education, and involvement in matters of constitution making for several countries around the globe like South Africa, Ukraine, Yemen and Egypt among others (constitutionaltransitions.org). His expertise includes the effect of the constitution on the issue of leadership, peace, justice, the court system and most importantly democracy. Sujit has authored several books and articles on such affairs and has gained global recognition on his work as well as continued inclusion by multiple states in constitutional processes.
Recently, Professor Choudhry has written a book chapter titled Constitutional Democracies in Crisis. This publication is a result of a commentary by the former United States Attorney General on the termination of the special counsel to the white house. In the statement, Eric Holder referred to the move to dismiss Robert Muller as a red line that would result in peaceful demonstrations from all over the United States. Mr. Choudhry explains that Holder’s remarks are focused on self-reinforcement of the constitution by the citizens through the said demonstrations that are expected to influence the matter. The chapter digs deep into the concept of constitutional self-reinforcement, the role of Democracy in executing the constitution and the legal correctness of the annotations by Eric (works.bepress.com).
