Thirty-three chapters are organized into sections on the significance of the independence of the judiciary; the judiciary and other branches of government; judicial independence in international and national law; judicial appointment, judicial conduct, and judicial accountability; country studies of judicial independence; and the development of international standards of judicial independence. Also included are texts of proposed international standards. Martinus Nijhoff is an imprint of Brill.
