Administrative Justice

The Administrative Justice stream attracts a broad range of papers, employing different methods and theoretical approaches towards the discipline, and covering different institutions involved in the delivery and oversight of public services. The focus of the stream is on socio-legal and empirical studies exploring the ground level capacity of public administration to deliver justice, but papers that explore legal doctrine alone are also considered. The stream receives papers from the international academic community, as well as PhD students.

The stream also has a link with the Journal of Social Welfare and Family Law, which has a dedicated administrative justice section.
