Law scholars from universities in Florence, Copenhagen, and Oslo explore judges as guardians of the fundamental rights of the individual, judges and judging in times of terrorism and surveillance, the judiciary in times of transition, and judges as guardians beyond the nation state: regional and international perspectives. Among their topics are the changing understanding of judicial legitimacy, the judiciary and the surveillance state: general trends and German experiences, judicial oversight of surveillance: the case of Ireland in comparative perspective, the role of the judiciary in Egypt’s failed transition to democracy, and the judicial dialogue between international and national courts in the Inter-American human rights system.

There are many challenges that national and supranational judges have to face when fulfilling their roles as guardians of constitutionalism and human rights. This book brings together academics and judges from different jurisdictions in an endeavour to uncover the intricacies of the judicial function. The contributors discuss several points that each represent contemporary challenges to judging: analysis of judicial balancing of conflicting considerations; the nature of courts’ legitimacy and its alleged dependence on public support; the role of judges in upholding constitutional values in the times of transition to democracy, surveillance and the fight against terrorism; and the role of international judges in guaranteeing globally recognized fundamental rights and freedoms.This book will be of interest to human rights scholars focusing on the issues of judicial oversight, as well as constitutional law scholars interested in comparative perspectives on the role of judges in different contexts. It will also be useful to national constitutional court judges, and law clerks aiming to familiarise themselves with judicial practices within other jurisdictions.
