This workshop, to take place at the University of Essex on 20-21 September, will be of interest to many of the readers of this website. Key issues to be discussed are:

(1) the role of the law and social norms in shaping and structuring administrative power and discretion;
(2) how administrations make and implement decisions, alone and with public and private partners,
especially how administrative power is distributed and shared in complex institutional arrangements
(e.g. outsourcing, combined authorities, at governmental length’s bodies) ;
(3) which factors (political, social, institutional, cultural) influence how administrative power is
exercised and how the law provides a structure or a space for administrations to balance these
competing factors?
