Research Handbook on Global Administrative Law

Research Handbooks on Globalisation and the Law series

Edited by Sabino Cassese, Professor of Global Law, LUISS Guido Carli University, Rome, Emeritus Justice of the Italian Constitutional Court and Emeritus Professor, Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa, Italy

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.

‘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
