Diana Woodhouse


Diana’s research focuses on the accountability of those who hold public office and the relationship between the different arms of government. She has written extensively on ministerial accountability, looking at both political accountability and the accountability of ministers to the courts, and on the accountability of senior judges, particularly in the context of the establishment of a UK Supreme Court. She is currently undertaking a comparative study of the office of the Attorney General. She is also contributing to a commemorative volume on the Judicial House of Lords and working with colleagues at Maastricht University on aspects of accountability within the European context.
