Sujit Choudhry with the help of other constitutional law authorities was trying to tackle the critical secession issue in Catalonia. They wrote an open letter to the Catalan and Spanish governments encouraging them to find common ground and have a civilized conversation on important constitutional matters.

They urged Catalonia’s president to demonstrate such a move and hold a referendum on succession and also not to suppress the citizen’s ability to conduct demonstrations about their opinions. They advised the two governments to come into terms of agreements through a constitution which considers the rights of both parties. The Spanish government took adverse actions which resulted in much tension on the issue.

Choudhry and his colleagues advised the Catalan prime minister who had no concern about the Catalan people and even went ahead to suppress those who were demonstrating their opinions that what he did was not acceptable on international law and a repeat on that would lead him to be charged against violation of human rights.
