This chapter examines the relationship between the courts and parliament as well as the executive. It addresses the consequences of creating a supreme court and the developments that have led to a more central role for the courts in determining issues of constitutional importance. It analyses the relationship between the courts and parliament, and between the courts and the executive, in terms of three models: strangers (respective autonomy), friends (democratic dialogue) and foes (competing authority), finding that the relationship between the courts and parliament has moved principally from one of respective autonomy to one of democratic dialogue, whereas that between the courts and the executive has become one on occasion of competing authority.
