In a world where governments can quickly dissolve into chaos or authoritarian rule against its people, some constitutional experts help bring order out of chaos. One of those constitutional experts has been the “go to” person for pressing international issues. That person, Sujit Choudhry, has helped people steer their nation back into working order.
Recently, Mr. Choudhry discussed what he calls “authoritarian backsliding” in Hungary’s and Poland’s governments. In a December 2017 roundtable, Mr. Choudhry mentioned that Central European Countries could eventually return to democratic order. These countries, which were once under the influence of the Soviet communists, have spent the last several decades within the membership of the European Union. The authoritarian backsliding, Mr. Choudhry asses, is simply a third wave backlash to a more Nationalist stance. And he sees both Hungary and Poland eventually returning back to a more representative form of government.
The ultimate goal of the roundtable was to help citizens and politicians in Hungary and Poland have the tools to return their country back to a representative democracy in a peaceful and expedited manner. With that goal in mind, excerpts like Sujit Choudhry are developing a path that can help their central European counterparts return to a more democratic form of government.
