This Handbook explores the main themes and topics of the emerging field of Global Administrative Law with contributions by leading scholars and experts from universities and organizations around the world. The variety of the subjects addressed and the internationality of the Handbook’s perspectives make for a truly global and multi-dimensional view of the field.

The book first examines the growth of global administrations, their interactions within global networks, the emergence of a global administrative process, and the development of the rule of law and democratic principles at a global level. It goes on to illustrate the relationship between global law and other legal orders, with particular attention to regional systems and national orders. The final section, devoted to the emergence of a global legal culture, brings the book full circle by identifying the growth of a global epistemic community.

The Research Handbook on Global Administrative Law provides a contemporary overview of the nascent field in detailed yet accessible terms, making it a valuable book for university courses. Academics and scholars with an interest in international law, administrative law, public law, and comparative law will find value in this book, as well as legal professionals involved with international and supranational organizations and national civil servants dealing with supranational organizations.
‘This Handbook is an essential introduction to a key component of legal globalization analysis. Global Administrative Law theory is a crucial complement to all existing international law approaches, flowing from the realization that the world is nowadays increasingly governed by bodies – and networks of bodies – that have an administrative rather than political role. The panel of contributors includes most of the issue's best experts, and they provide us with an indispensable intellectual background to enter into an analysis of what it is made of and how to subject it to the rule of law.’
– Jean-Bernard Auby, The Paris Institute of Political Studies, France
