Posted on November 25, 2017 in Expert Lawyer/Educator

Sujit Choudhry, founding director of Center of Constitutional Transitions, is a renowned advisor to many foreign dignitaries. He is also known for his prowess when it comes to comparative constitutional law and politics. Some of the nations which Mr. Choudhry has helped make their constitution include South Africa, Nepal, Jordan, and Yemen among others.

Professor Sujit Choudhry is committed to preventing violence as he urges many conflicting nations to apply peaceful means of solving their misunderstandings. He has more than twenty years of experience which makes him very competent. Mr. Sujit has played a significant role in addressing the present disagreement between Catalonian and Spanish governments.

Spanish and Catalonian governments’ misunderstanding

When it comes to the Catalonia’s independence quest, there is a mixed reaction from its citizens. Some are discouraging their president, Mr. Puigdemont, from insisting that they wish to secede from Spanish governance. On the other hand, others emphasize that they must be allowed to have a referendum, a wish that has triggered fierce criticism from Spanish Government.

Sujit Choudhry and other seasoned constitutional law scholars recently authored a letter to Spanish and Catalan governments pleading for their dialogue in the solution of their present crisis. The only way that this crisis would end according to the scholars and Catalans is if Puigdemont, the Catalonian president would secede from Spain.

The referendum would be a better way of incorporating Catalans’ desires (quest for independence) to the final constitutional settlement that will be made. Brutality was recently seen when the Spanish government denied Catalans the right to conduct a referendum that would lead them to independence.  More to read on constitutionaltransitions.org.

The fact that Mr. Rajoy arrested and prosecuted Catalonian freedom fighters was highly discouraged by the scholars. In fact, they want the Prime Minister to be soft when dealing with Catalonians. This will ensure that human rights are respected as the two nations tried to solve their disputes.  Additional article on works.bepress.com
