According to Sujit Choudhry, democracy in Ukraine has been unstable for the past 20 years because of several factors such as weak political parties, giving the President more power, separation of executive power between the President and Prime Minister, and weak electoral system, which is controlled by the legislature. In the event to discuss issues about the executive powers in Ukraine, Mr. Sujit was joined by Thomas Sidelius of the University of Dalarna and Sumit Bisarya of the International IDEA. Roundtable participants included Ihor Koliushko, president advisor, Vladimir Vasilenko, Sergyi Holovatyi, a member of CCU (Constitutional Commission of Ukraine), and Viktor Musiaka, president representative at the Supreme Council.
Mr. Sujit has lectured and served as the advisor to constitutional process in more than 12 countries around the world. His involvement with the Ukraine’s case came after he just released Choudhry’s Constitution Making, a collection consisting of case studies, notable academic contributions, and classic topics about constitutional law. Choudhry understands that there has been a wave of decision making regarding constitution and transitional democracy. It is critical for leaders to discuss and gather policy options that are evidence-based. These options can be useful when it comes to the support of the reform process of constitution.
