Speaking to the CEOCFO Magazine, Professor Choudhry stated that the idea behind the formation of the Center for Constitutional Transitions was to facilitate the knowledge base for constitutional creations by making critical facts available for organized networks of top international experts for research assignments to provide alternative policy options for decision makers. Working as a constitutional advisor for many years, he realized that there were non-existent, obsolete, and in some situations incomplete knowledge pertaining to issues on constitutional transitions. Through his organization, Professor Choudhry has been able to create an international knowledge network of accomplished legal practitioners and scholars around the world but networks outlived his projects. According to him, a new organization is required to organize and host universal constitutional case-law in many languages given the limited time and funds.
