Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article considers what is meant by the third arm of government within the separation of powers doctrine and examines the core features of courts and tribunals. It questions the place that tribunals occupy within the doctrine and the purpose of the state in creating tribunals. The argument is made that tribunals are hybrid institutions whose central purpose is to foster quick, cheap and informal dispute resolution as a part of the executive arm of government.
