This research project dives into the very core of the relationship between law and politics, focusing on how the ideological profiles of bearers of judicial power influence their performance. The term ideological profile is not used here in the pejorative sense of ideology as something negative, manipulative or even dangerous. Rather an ideological profile is the comprehensive system of values, beliefs and views through which a person sees and helps create the social world around him or herself, which includes the law. It covers political views in the broadest sense of politics as everything related to public matters.
