The Rule Of Law And Administrative Justice
This paper aims to highlight the continuation of the process of convergence that Mario Chiti has identified in his work, subject of course to different ways of applying or implementing those principles. In addressing this topic, the article starts by discussing the growth of English administrative law, then proceeds to European administrative law, followed by reference to international developments which have not yet been discussed (this is the 'new frontier' under the theme in this session). The development of administrative law is based upon the fundamental requirements of the rule of law. This is because the central purpose of the rule of law is to shift arbitrary decision-making to accountability.
