Administrative Justice

The standards and principles on administrative justice are encompassed within the right to fair trial through the concepts of civil  rights and obligations (e.g. article 6 (1) ECHR and article 14 ICCPR). The right to a fair trial is also clearly related to the right to effective remedy as foreseen in article 2 par.3 ICCPR, and article 13 ECHR, as it implies the establishment of appropriate judicial and administrative mechanisms for addressing claims of violations under domestic law, and adequate compensation. While international law in the past treated administrative justice differently from criminal proceedings, jurisprudence from international and regional treaty bodies and courts, for example the European Court of Human Rights and the Human Rights Committee, now includes administrative proceedings within the right to a fair trial and legal remedy.
