I now have another publication to report. I have an article in the latest issue (shown right) of the Asia-Pacific Law Review, vol. 21 (2), 2013. The article – ‘A Democratic Dialogue? Parliament and Human Rights in the United Kingdom’ – looks at the relationship between legislatures and courts. It identifies three models of the relationship: the respective autonomy, competing authority, and democratic dialogue models. It then examines the extent to which the relationship between Parliament and the courts in the UK fits any one and focuses on human rights. The three models I first identified in my keynote lecture at the annual conference of the Dutch Society for Constitutional Law at Leiden University in December 2012.
This is not my first piece in the journal. My article, ‘Adding Value? The Role of Second Chambers’, was published in 2007. For those interested, you can read a copy of that article here.
