Professors: DIAMANDOUROS Nikiforos & HARDEN Ian

Academic Assistant:  BROVDIY Yana

An overarching concept is proposed that links good administration to the rule of law and to the quality of democracy. The course then focuses on the institutional characteristics of the ombudsman institution in general and the European Ombudsman in particular. Case studies examine how the concept of good administration is elaborated in the practice of the European Ombudsman in different contexts, including the relationship between good administration as a fundamental right and other fundamental rights. The course concludes with an assessment of the relationship between good administration and the citizenship of the Union.
