Lunchtime talk with Dr Allan F. Tatham

2017

On 15 November 2017, Dr Allan Tatham, Lecturer in EU Law, International Law and International Relations, Universidad CEU San Pablo, Madrid, gave a lunchtime talk entitled, “Without Fear or Favour’: Ensuring the independence and accountability of regional judiciaries.” In his insightful and captivating lecture, Dr Tatham considered the balance between ensuring the independence of courts and their accountability. In particular, he discussed how this balance could be achieved with respect to regional courts, given the political and economic pressures they often face. In doing so, Dr Tatham drew on the experiences of the Caribbean Court of Justice (“CCJ”), the Court of Justice of the European Union (“CJEU”) and the Court of Justice of the Economic Community of West African States (“ECOWAS Court”). In this context, he emphasised the role that non-political, quasi-judicial bodies, such as judicial councils, have in ensuring judicial independence and discipline. Dr Tatham further elaborated upon how the composition and role of such bodies can be affected by their surrounding legal and socio-economic environments. He concluded by noting that while quasi-judicial bodies play a crucial role, national executives are unlikely to completely relinquish their power over judicial appointments and discipline.  His talk was followed by an engaging discussion.
