Show Summary Details


This chapter examines those administrative processes that settle or make recommendations about matters of policy. It identifies different forms of policy making and places the process in a wider context. It then moves from the descriptive features of the policy process to the normative standards which guide it. The main objective of the chapter is to develop a notion of procedural fairness in relation to administrative policy making, which in turn depends on articulating the standards of fair treatment of persons and groups.

Keywords: administrative processes; policy; policy making; procedural fairness; fair treatment
