Show Summary Details


This chapter examines forms of process based on the application of authoritative standards. The main issue is to develop a notion of administrative adjudication within which certain principles of fair treatment are applied and respected. In the course of doing so, a distinction is drawn between an adjudicative mode where fair treatment of the individual party is the foremost concern, and a bureaucratic mode which stresses expedition and regularity. In this chapter, the link between adjudication and fair treatment is examined at length. The limitations of adjudication as a means of ensuring fair treatment are identified and suggestions are made as to how failure may be achieved through alternative procedures.
