Administrative justice is one of the seven themes within our Law in Society programme. The focus of our work in this area is not on public administration per se but on how dispute resolution may be improved. This may require acquiring better descriptive information or studying reforms or making comparisons between different practices.
Particular topics within administrative justice include:
- Better understanding about what feedback from administrative justice redress mechanisms might improve front-line decision-making.
- How to provide appropriate support for applicants where required.
- How particular administrative justice mechanisms work, what their strengths and weaknesses are and what principles might guide policy makers when choosing between them.
- The issues of proportionality and access lead us to have a general interest in tribunals and non-court adjudication as well.
- Outcomes: what happens after redress? What are levels of compliance and settlement, and what policy changes might address short-comings?
