(p.183) 7 The Relationship between the Administration and the Other Branches
The New Separation of Powers

Eoin Carolan

Oxford University Press

This chapter briefly considers the way in which the relationship between the administration and the other branches of government might operate. Because the institutions each represent a particular constituent social interest, their input into the governance process is both legitimate and provisional. This means that the institutions must co-operate with each other in exercising public powers. It is argued that they ought to engage in an inter-institutional dialogue which should produce outcomes whichthat take appropriate account of all relevant perspectives. The institutions must justify their actions to each other with a view to providing more reasoned and informed government outcomes. The particular skills of each institution make them more equipped to perform particular tasks, but these outcomes can be reviewed by other bodies.

Keywords:   inter-institutional blending, deference, respect, scepticism, provisionality, reasons, dialogue
