This conversation series will invite judges from a wide range of jurisdictions, including national and supranational courts, to address questions about the separation of powers in the context of their own jurisdictions. Issues to be explored include the legal and political factors that determine the role of the judiciary, the relationship between the judiciary and other institutions, and the concept of judicial independence.

Discussants for this event are Octavio Ferraz (Reader in Transnational Law, Kings College London) and Sandra Fredman (Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the United States, University of Oxford)

This event is held in partnership with The Oxford Human Rights Hub (OxHRH), Oxford Transitional Justice Research Group (OTJR), The Oxford Network of Peace Studies (OxPeace), The Oxford Changing Character of War Programme (CCW) and The Latin American Centre within Area Studies, Oxford.
