'EU Administrative Law' considers the ways in which the EU administers policy, the objective being to explicate, analyse and evaluate the modes of policy delivery, to assess the role of law therein and to draw conclusions about their relative efficacy. The approach throughout is contextual and inter-disciplinary. The focus in Part II shifts to 'Law and Administration' with analysis of the principles of judicial review as they have been developed by the Community courts. The chapters consider in-depth the principles of judicial review that are applied to control and structure EU administration and that of the Member States when acting in the sphere of EU law. The discussion takes full account of the legislative and political initiatives that are relevant to particular issues, as well as the contribution made by the Community courts.
