An Administrative Procedure Act for the EU?
As is well known, the EU does not have an administrative procedure act governing decision-making under EU law. Whereas national administrative bodies apply domestic administrative law within the framework of procedural autonomy when applying EU law, the EU institutions are governed by fragmented rules and principles established in case-law. In an ambitious project to strengthen the constitutional values of EU administrative law, the EU-wide Research Network on European Administrative Law (ReNEUAL) has put forward a set of model rules on EU Administrative Procedure (available on http://reneual.eu/). The purpose is to present a possible legal framework for EU Administrative Procedure Law in the light of established principles. Furthermore, the Model Rules take comparative research into account, identifying best practices in various fields. The conference addresses these Model Rules in Nordic Perspective, highlighting Nordic constitutional and administrative law values in the EU Law context. The discussions will cover aspects relating to both EU institutions and national administrative bodies.
The conference is organized by the Faculty of Law and the Centre for European Studies at Lund University in cooperation with the Swedish Network for European Legal Studies.
