The Capacity of Courts to Handle Complex Cases

5 December 2008

St Hugh's College, Oxford

This workshop examines issues which arise as a result of two commonly
made claims. The first observes that the modern day policy process has
become increasingly complicated. Effective decision making in a range
of policy areas appears to depend upon a detailed knowledge of a range
of complex fields, from macroeconomics to biotechnology. The second
notes that courts are increasingly playing an active role in the
contemporary policymaking process. The workshop studies the extent to
which they are able to act effectively in today's complex social
policy environment.
