Inter-institutional Interactions

Inter-institutional Interactions

(p.117) 4 Inter-institutional Interactions
Democratic Dialogue and the Constitution

Alison L Young

Oxford University Press

The chapter investigates inter-institutional interactions. It explains how these interactions can occur in legal systems with a strong constitutional protection of rights and those with a predominantly political protection of rights, in addition to interactions occurring in commonwealth models of rights protections. These can occur through the way in which each institution exercises its constitutional powers. It also recognizes that commonwealth models of rights protections need not facilitate dialogue. Whether dialogue is facilitated depends upon how each institution exercises its powers under a commonwealth model. Nevertheless, dialogue may be better facilitated under the commonwealth model. The commonwealth model is designed to provide legal or formal mechanisms of constitutional counter-balancing. This means that these models are more likely to facilitate constitutional collaboration than legal systems with a strong constitutional or a predominantly political protection of rights.
