The Executive and Public Law: Power and Accountability in Comparative Perspective

Paul Craig and Adam Tomkins

Abstract

This is a book about the definition of executive power and the ways in which it can be rendered accountable. Such power is especially important in the modern day, as exemplified by the detention of prisoners in Guantanomo Bay. The book explores the nature of executive power in a number of different legal systems including England, Scotland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the EU, and draws insights from the comparative perspective.

Keywords: executive power, Guantanomo Bay, legal systems, England, Scotland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, EU
