General Principles of Administrative Law

6.2.2017 - 11.2.2017 - Tiblissi State University

Objective of the Lecture

The lecture shall complement the lecture on Georgian Administrative Law. The aim of the lecture is not to teach Georgian Administrative Law but to explain general principles of administrative law, particularly on the basis of the work of the Council of Europe on this subject, which reflects - in spite of differences between the administrative and the legal systems - that there is a broad consensus on the fundamental principles which should govern the administrative procedures and, particularly, the necessity to ensure fairness in the relations between the individual and administrative authorities. These "Pan-European-Administrative-Law-Principles" will be analysed on the basis of the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and the recommendations on administrative law of the Council of Europe.
