Sujit Choudhry Pens His Contribution To Help Resolve The Spain and Catalan Governments Crisis

Sujit Choudhry is a renowned constitutional expert and a Professor of Law at the California University. He recently joined several acclaimed constitutional law scholars and together they penned an open letter that was submitted to the Spanish and Catalan governments with a view to persuade them to unanimously resolve the crisis ailing Catalonia. The objective of this letter was to bring the two governments to the negotiating table with the hope they would afterwards act in good faith and resolve their constitutional issues.

In this letter, the scholars address President Carles Puigdemont and their message to him is that he should show his commitment to the task of ensuring Catalonia secedes from Spain successfully. According to the scholars, they believed the best way the Catalonian president would demonstrate commitment is through calling for a referendum that would help to confirm the wishes of the people of Catalonia. Sujit Choudhry also asked Rajoy, the Prime Minister of Spain, to acknowledge that many Catalans are for secession and that this is a right they should be granted without attempts to suppress their willingness to express their desires.

Also in this letter that Sujit Choudhry co-authored, the scholars add that it is in the best interest of everyone in Spain and Catalonia and more specifically those living along the borders of the two. Therefore, working together to arrive at a common goal is something that cannot be overlooked as this is the only way both sides can ensure the European Union foundational ideals are not undermined.  Read about his published work, browse on this..
