About The Book

This book offers a unique understanding of what administrative justice means in Wales and for Wales, whilst also providing an expert and timely analysis of comparative developments in law and administration. It includes critical analysis of distinctly Welsh administrative laws and redress measures, whilst examining contemporary administrative justice issues across a range of common and civil law, European and international jurisdictions. Key issues include the roles of commissioners, administrative courts, tribunals and ombudsmen in devolved and federal nations, and evolving relationships between citizens and the state – especially in the context of localisation and austerity – and will be of interest to legal and public administration professionals at home and internationally.

Endorsements

‘Since full legislative devolution in 2011, it becomes increasingly important that the developing law for Wales be analysed authoritatively in its proper historic constitutional context. This excellent book is a vital contribution to that process of learning and education, and I congratulate all who have contributed to its preparation.’
- Theodore Huckle QC, Counsel General for Wales 2011–16

‘Pioneering and authoritative, this is a landmark title on the challenges and opportunities of administrative justice in conditions of small country governance. In bringing together local and comparative perspectives in this edited collection, Sarah Nason places Wales firmly in the mainstream of contemporary legal discussion.’
- Professor Richard Rawlings, University College London
