This book presents a comprehensive look at administrative justice in Wales and also sets it in a comparative context. The contributors offer critical analysis of distinctly Welsh administrative laws and measures for redress of harms, and they compare those to approaches to similar questions across a range of common and civil law in European and international jurisdictions. Particular areas of focus 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 recent austerity measures and pushes for decentralization of administrative and legal functions.
Review Quotes
Theodore Huckle QC, Counsel General for Wales 2011–16
“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.”
Richard Rawlings, University College London
“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.”
