Chapter Summary

In well over three decades, the Association and its members have contributed to the advancement of the rule of law and world peace through its promotion of an independent judiciary. The various conferences held during the last decade focused on many aspects of judicial independence, rule of law, and world peace and they were conducted in different parts of the globe. The culture of judicial independence is created on five aspects: creating institutional structure, establishing constitutional infrastructures, introducing legislative provisions and constitutional safeguards, creating adjudicative arrangements and jurisprudence, and maintaining ethical traditions and code of judicial conduct. International law plays a significant role in creating the culture of judicial independence in domestic law. International law influences domestic law by virtue of international human rights treaties, which provide for principles of fair procedures and for the right to be tried before an impartial and independent tribunal.
