THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT TO GOOD ADMINISTRATIVE BEHAVIOUR
Everyone is entitled to “good administration”!
“The Council of Europe aims to achieve greater unity among its members in order to safeguard and promote the principles which are their common heritage and to foster economic and social progress.” “Greater unity among its members” – the Council of Europe’s goal can be achieved in many ways. Article 1 of its Statute specifically refers to the Council of Europe’s task of upholding and promoting human rights and fundamental freedoms to achieve this ‘greater unity’. In any event, administrative procedure requires common European rules since it is a specific area of law where the public authority meets citizens directly. Consequently, these cases entail the risk of infringing the fundamental rights of citizens, which is certainly undesirable in a constitutional state. In today’s national administrative systems, administrative procedural law is becoming increasingly important. In practice, the main tendencies are to limit the executive power of the state to constitutional limits, to guarantee the fundamental rights of citizens and to create ‘good administration’. Looking at European administrative law, does European administrative procedural law even exist? What form and level of unification can be expected? The answer can be found in the documents drawn up by the Council of Europe in this area.
