This Primer covers the systems used for appointing judges in constitutional democracies.

Various commonly used systems of appointment are discussed, including career judiciaries, appointment by an independent commission and appointment by the representative or co- operative interaction of legislative and executive branches.

International IDEA’s Constitution-Building Primers are designed to assist in-country constitution-building or constitutional-reform processes by helping citizens, political parties, civil society organisations, public officials, and members of constituent assemblies make wise constitutional choices.
