Judicial activism and its impact on political development


Increasingly judicial decisions are shaping the development of our laws and thereby impacting politics. Drawing on his experience of the High Court of England and Wales, but also drawing on the developments at both the European Court of Human Rights at Strasbourg and European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, this session helps us to consider the impact of this rise in judicial activism in contemporary Europe and, especially, what affect it might have on the Christian’s interaction with the political world.
