On July 10th in Kiev, Sujit Choudhry, Director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions, met up with other constitutional experts to discuss the Ukrainian government. He made the statement that building democracy in the Ukraine has not been a stable process and that it is highly important for for constitutional thought leaders to talk about options that are policy-based for the constitutional reform process going on in the Ukraine. He feels like the issues with the legislature electoral system, the concentration of presidential power, and a system full of weak political parties have all been a part of the greater problems at-large. He was joined by a spread of influential people with plenty of knowledge in the subject, including, Ukraine’s representative on Human Rights; Vladimir Vasilenko, Dalarna University’s Thomas Sidelius, Ihor Koliushko; a representative of Center for policy and legal reform, and many more. Sujit Choudhry’s Center of Constitutional Transitions project has helped to offer information and knowledge that helps nations to build their own constitutions, and he hopes to do the same in the Ukraine.
