Politics of Judicial Independence and Judicial Accountability
Organized by: Masaryk University Law School (Brno, Czech Republic)
Venue: Supreme Administrative Court of the Czech Republic (Brno)
[May 31 – June 1, 2014]
Judicial independence appears on most laundry lists of principles of the rule of law. It is guaranteed by all major international human rights treaties and by most national constitutions. In contrast, we can hardly find any laundry list of the rule-of-law principles that contains judicial accountability. Yet, the call for public accountability has recently affected the judiciary as well. To make things even more complicated, supranational European bodies have been strongly advocating for greater judicial autonomy and the High Councils of the Judiciary. Virtually all countries thus think hard how to rebalance judicial independence with judicial accountability. We have very little understanding of the logics and dynamics of these institutional reforms and practice. This conference will explore the political vectors behind High Councils of the Judiciary, the measures adopted in order to enhance judicial accountability, and the impact of these novelties on judicial independence. 

All sessions will take place in the Plenary Room of the Supreme Administrative Court of the Czech Republic, unless noted otherwise.

Mohu se zeptat,proč si čeští právníci na pozvánce nepíšou tituly, když v českých testech si je píší ?
