Sujit Choudhry Sharing His Thoughts on How to Solve Political Crisis in Ukraine

The biggest problem with the world today is the lack of progress in the field of law. Most of the countries are following laws that were framed decades back, and it needs to change by the changing times. Many progressive countries are making these changes, but some of the conservative countries are still lacking behind. The basis of the legal amendments that need to be made is comparative law. Sujit Choudhry is the leading figure on the topic of comparative law and has written several books as well as articles on the subject that are being followed by the prominent legal scholars globally.

Recently, Sujit Choudhry traveled to Kiev, Ukraine, where a conference was hosted by the country’s Center for Policy and Legal Reforms. The meeting was organized to discuss how the political crisis in Ukraine can be resolved. Sujit Choudhry also spoke on the topic, and his points were appreciated by the many leading scholars present at the event. Sujit Choudhry said that the country has been practicing semi-presidential system for many years, which dilutes the power between the prime minister as well as the president, and makes decision-making process tough (medium.com). Sujit Choudhry also said that the political structure of the country is very brittle due to the lack of strong political parties, and thus, these are the areas that the government of the country needs to work upon on a priority basis.
