The Independence of Judges is an anthology, illustrating that there is still a need for further exploration and reflection on various aspects of the principle of judicial independence.

The book's contributions provide an overview of historical developments, as well as issues of current interest in developed countries and in countries in transition, regarding the independent judge. It promotes reflection and debate on universal issues related to the independence of judges. The Independence of Judges will be of interest for anyone concerned with democracy and democracy-building by upholding the rule of law. *** "The Norwegian Association of Judges published a book on judicial independence to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2012. With adaptations for an international audience, the book, originally issued in Norwegian, has been issued in English, containing 22 essarys on various aspects of judicial independence.

Twenty-two contributions discuss legislative and executive powers, management of the judiciary, the international perspective, international courts, the multicultural society, and philosophical and ethical perspectives, among other topics.
