Judicial Studies Institute

JUSTIN (Judicial Studies Institute) is a research center dedicated to the study of domestic courts, international tribunals and various bodies involved in court administration. JUSTIN opened in September 2016 with the help of the ERC Starting Grant (JUDI-ARCH, 2016-2021), which focuses on the ever growing role of judicial councils and other forms of judicial self-government in a globalizing legal order. JUSTIN's research efforts aim at creating groundbreaking results within the field of inquiry through a series of closely integrated interdisciplinary research projects that study courts and judges from legal, philosophical, political science and sociological perspectives, and employ both qualitative and quantitative methods. Research at JUSTIN currently concerns judicial independence, judicial accountability, public confidence in courts and judges, transparency of the judiciary, legitimacy of courts, legislative responses to the Strasbourg case law, citation analysis, and domestic compliance with decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and UN human rights bodies. JUSTIN strives to become the globally leading hub for research on judicial self-government and its impact on law, politics and society..
