Popis Regarding judicial self-government, Germany and Czechia have been labelled as “persistent objectors”, “black sheep”, and “outliers”. Germany and Czechia are prime examples of systems of judicial governance without high judicial councils. They belong to the Ministry of Justice model. In the recent scholarship and policy documents, this model is often seen as outdated and problematic from the viewpoint of the rule of law and the separation of powers as it allows executive interference and impairs judicial independence. But how is the system viewed by the insiders who participate in its daily operation? Do they agree with the negative assessment of the MoJ model? Do they seek greater JSG or even introduction of a judicial council? This chapter explores these questions by way of a paired comparison of two prominent cases: Germany – a traditional representative of the MoJ model, and Czechia – the only post-communist country of CEE that did not introduce the judicial council.
