Independence, Did Someone Say Independence? Questions about a Core Value of Justice

As a central principle of democracy and the rule of law, the independence of the judiciary is a fundamental value with a universal vocation. It has been guaranteed by many international agreements, yet it is not recognized everywhere and is the object of blatant violations in certain states, even in Europe. In France, the multiplication of reference documents, the different modalities of guarantee depending on the categories of judges, the discussion about its scope of application, the confusion between judges and public prosecutors, and political resistance have given a controversial image of this value which weakens it in the eyes of citizens. And yet, apart from rare mishandlings, its value is clearly perceived and rigorously implemented by judges in their ordinary activity.
