Sujit Choudhry works with the Center for Constitutional Transitions as its Director, and when asked what the purpose behind the organization was, he answered that the group works with experts all over the world to put together a base of knowledge about constitution building. He founded the organization because he found that there was a lack of solid data and information about constitution building and felt this was needed. He has found that being an immigrant who has attended three different universities where he obtained law degrees has given him a particular set of skills and outlook on the world that has helped him in his job. When asked what is ahead for the Center of Constitutional Transitions, Sujit Choudhry commented that the organization is working with International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance on a number of research projects that will enable them to put out knowledge products as soon as possible.
