Commonwealth Caribbean Administrative Law

Front Cover
Routledge, Nov 12, 2012 - Law - 454 pages

Commonwealth Caribbean Administrative Law comprehensively explores the nature and function of administrative law in contemporary Caribbean society.

It considers the administrative machinery of Caribbean States; Parliament, the Executive and the judiciary. It then examines the basis for judicial review of executive and administrative action in the Caribbean by looking at the statutory provisions that underpin this and the plethora of case law emerging from the region. The book will also look to how the courts in the Commonwealth Caribbean have sought to define principles of administrative law.

This book will also consider the alternative methods by which the rights of citizens are protected, including the ombudsman and the use of tribunals and inquiries, as well as looking forward to the increasingly significant role of Caribbean Integration law and bodies such as CARICOM and the OESC.
