This encyclopaedia entry is a detailed comparative law analysis of the evolution and operation of the constitutional law principle of executive privilege. It examines this constitutional law principle in four common law jurisdictions: the UK, the US, Australia and Canada. It addresses Crown privilege, public interest immunity, state secrets privilege and evidentiary privilege. And in doing so addresses the role of the executive and its relationship with the legislature and the judiciary, and thus the separation of powers.
Bibliographical noteThis is a 6,000 word encyclopaedia entry that will be published here: http://oxcon.ouplaw.com/home/mpeccol. It is with the publisher awaiting publication.
