Unpacking separation of powers : judicial independence, sovereignty and conceptual flexibility in the UK constitution.

Masterman, Roger and Wheatle, Se-shauna (2017) 'Unpacking separation of powers : judicial independence, sovereignty and conceptual flexibility in the UK constitution.', Public law., 2017 (Jul). pp. 469-487.

Abstract

Considers the extent to which the UK doctrine of separation of powers exerts a normative influence on judicial decision-making. Examines the evolving constitutional significance of the doctrine, and how it manifests itself in judicial discourse through variants that are hierarchical, weakly normative, strongly normative and constitutionally fundamental. Outlines the context-specific nature of the variants.
