From Kenya to Myanmar to Tunisia and Chile, the making of constitutions has changed since the United State's Philadelphia Convention 240 years ago. Sumit Bisarya JD'04, Head of Constitution-Building Processes at the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance, will discuss how constitutions are drafted today and how international assistance can help—or hinder—such efforts.

Sumit will also give some insights into pursuing careers in the field of international assistance in rule of law, democracy, and governance.

Hosted by SJI. Snacks will be served. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options will be available. If you have further dietary restrictions, email Diana Pedi at [email protected] at least two business days prior to the event, and we will do our best to accommodate them.
