A 'core' or 'standard' public authority1 is a body whose nature is governmental, on the basis of possession of special powers, democratic accountability, public funding in whole or in part, an obligation to act only in the public interest, and a statutory constitution2. In considering whether or not a particular body is a 'core' public authority it must be borne in mind that one consequence of such status is that the body in question could never be classified as a 'victim' for the purposes of the European Convention on Human Rights
