Administrative Justice

The principles of administrative justice are encompassed within the right to a fair trial, which is protected under international human rights law. This section therefore offers a selection of standards enshrined in universal and regional instruments and OSCE human dimension commitments related to the two key components of access to administrative justice – the right to a fair trial and the right to an effective remedy. It also contains full texts and summaries of primary and secondary legislation on the functioning of administrative justice system, administrative procedure and administrative violations in a number of OSCE participating States.

This section also offers other resources and tools for legal professionals and lawmakers, such as legal opinions on selected national legislation pertaining to administrative justice.
