For years, the Center for Constitutional Transitions has already assisted dozens of states which have been under civil wars and unrest. They have contacted Sujit Choudhry to help them create their new constitution after the conflict. Knowing a lot about a field, it is an easy task for him to carve out a new set of laws for the state. What he prioritizes when creating a new constitution is the inclusion of a democratic way for the society to operate. He stated that it is one of the fundamental things that a constitution should consider, and without it, the constitution would not function.

Last year, Sujit Choudhry had to travel to Kiev, Ukraine to speak with several government officials who are considering shifting to a democratic form of government. Ukraine has been under the state of chaos after the ouster of their previous president, and the remaining remnants of the Ukrainian Government wanted to fix everything. They have called upon the service of Sujit Choudhry because they knew that he could help them with their concern. They had a meeting regarding the future of Ukraine, and how the remaining government officials wanted to rule the country. Sujit Choudhry then gave his insights about the present situation of the country, and what measures are needed to ensure that the peace and order situation in the country will be restored. Sujit Choudhry stated that Ukraine could experience changes once they decided to become democratic, and it will be good for the public.
