The rise of regional administrative courts is one of the most important recent evolutions with regard to the organization of justice in Belgium. The decisions of Flemish administrative judges have a big impact on people’s lives, ranging from disputes about environmental permits to election results. The creation and organization of these new courts raises interesting and important questions connected to the rule of law.
Supported by comparative law and a participatory methodology, this project answers theoretical, empirical and normative questions in that regard. It aims to offer a path to the development of administrative judiciaries in the Belgian federated entities in line with the rule of law.
