How do rulers seek judicial compliance with authoritarian measures, how do judges react to such measures, and what are the conditions under which an independent judiciary breaks down? These questions have been addressed from the perspective of institutional theory, looking at the experiences of Central and Eastern European states under communist rule. In this final conference, we will summarise some of the results and point to questions for the future.
