Sujit Choudhry is irrefutably an expert when it comes to comparative constitutional law and constitution building process. Aside from his official roles, particularly as the faculty director and founder of the Center for Constitutional Transitions, he likes to share his ideas and opinions through his Medium Account. Most of Choudhry’s posts revolve around constitutional matters such as reforms and the developments taking place in the political scene.
In one of the articles posted on Sujit Choudhry’s Medium account, he explored the increasing role of social media in politics, especially in the US and around the world. In this case, he looked at how the Trump Administration has made Twitter communications more relevant than they were a few years back. This situation is owed to President Trump’s use of the social platform to air out his stand on various matters including complaining about legislators and judges.
In another post, Sujit Choudhry focuses on the EU’s new GDPR rules and their effects on American-based companies involved in mining data from EU residents. The law protects all EU residents from data mining, especially by companies that are based outside the European Union. According to Sujit Choudhry, companies that suspect that they may encounter problems with the new GDPR rules have to seek legal advice on the matter. The reason for this is due to the different views pertaining the collection of individuals’ data between the United States and the EU nations.
