Administrative Justice Fin de siècle. Early Judicial Standards of Administrative Conduct in Europe
In order to investigate “The Future of Public Law“, an insight into the past of public law might prove to be very helpful and fruitful. A diachronic perspective allows to give a sense of how institutions and norms have changed over time. The panel will discuss the recently released book Adiministrative Justice Fin de siècle. Early Judicial Standards of Administrative Conduct in Europe (1890-1910), edited by Giacinto della Cananea and Stefano Mannoni, which is the second volume of the new OUP Series dedicated to “The Common Core of European Administrative Laws“. The volume seeks to contribute to a better understanding of the foundations of administrative institutions. These years saw both a growth of governments and either the entry into force or the consolidation of mechanism of control on public authorities. Through a comparative analysis, the principles governing administrative action are identified, together with a focus on their development during that time.
