New video: challenges to judicial independence in times of crisis

September 5, 2018



The first conference in the British Academy's 2018 programme explored the question of challenges to judicial independence in times of crisis. The conference was co-convened by BiE's director, Prof Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos (Goldsmiths) and Dr Yvonne McDermott Rees (Swansea University). In the video published here, the former Lord Chief Justice, Lord Thomas of Cmwgiedd, and Justice at the UK Supreme Court, Lord Kerr, along with Prof Kate Malleson (QMU), offer analysis on the topic.


The conference was inspired by attacks at the British judiciary by the press, in the context of Brexit and the "Miller" judgment, but also had a strong international and interdisciplinary dimension.


Other speakers included:

Dr Daniel Aguirre, University of Greenwich

Professor Ilias G. Anagnostopoulos, Athens Law School

Professor Vian Bakir, Bangor University

Dr Moa Bladini, University of Gothenburg

M Guy Canivet, former President, Cour de Cassation
