This chapter illustrates the principle of relativity by explaining why public authorities may or may not be required to give reasons for their decisions, depending on the type of decision and its context. The discussions cover the deprivation principle; the duty of respect; trigger factors for reasons; the Padfield practicality principle; the content of reasons; how to remedy inadequate reasons; reasons and process danger; and the difference between process and substance, and why it matters.
