Abstract

Judicial Independence today is facing, particularly in Europe, new threats emerging from populist political regimens. After a structural analysis of the main constraints to the upholding of an independent judiciary, some indications are listed, in a very brief note, to better affirm, at the level of the judiciary, the values of Democracy and Rule of Law, assuming an “ethics of practical responsibility”.
