According to Sujit Choudhry, without a constitution, no constitutional democracy is complete. Additionally, a constitution is also not complete without input from an expert in comparative constitutional law. Having worked in different countries with different cultures, Choudhry takes on an empathetic approach towards the process of coming up with a constitution. By understanding the point-of-view of the democracies involved, he uses constitutional law to advocate for peace. He encourages these nations not to fear change but to embrace it instead. As such, he is a proponent of using constitutionalism in coming up with objective public policy. As an international authority on matters comparative constitutional law and politics, Sujit Choudhry has given talks and lectures across the world and worked with countries such as Egypt, Libya, Jordan, Nepal, Tunisia, South Africa, Ukraine and, Sri Lanka on their constitution-building processes.
