Global Administrative Law (From Benedict Kingsbury, Nico Kirsch, and Richard B. Stewart, The Emergence of Global Administrative Law, 68 L. & Contemp. Probl. 15 (2005)) Definition: Global administrative action is rulemaking, adjudications, and other decisions that are neither treaty-making nor simple dispute settlements between parties.
Global Administrative Law Categories: Administration by formal IOs Administration based on collective action by transnational networks of national regulatory officials Distributed administration conducted by national regulators under treaty, network, or other cooperative regimes Administration by hybrid intergovernmental-private arrangements Administration by private institutions with regulatory functions
Subjects of Global Administration States Individuals Corporations NGOs and Other Collectivities
Emerging Principles Procedural participation and transparency Reasoned decisions Review Substantive standards: Proportionality Means-ends rationality Avoidance of unnecessarily restrictive means Legitimate expectations Restricting immunities of IOs and their officials
A Taxonomy of Ways to Apply the Principles Domestic institutions as checks on global administration Internal global mechanisms for participation and accountability Global disciplines on distributed administration © Josй E. Alvarez 2008
