The Rule of Law: relationship with benefit sanctions

Post by Caker on Fri Apr 28, 2017 5:23 pm

I found this interesting article while browsing the internet. It is a couple of years old but still relevant IMHO.

Extract from the above article
By M Adler of UK Administrative Justice Institute

The eight principles of the Rule of Law

1. The law must be accessible and, so far as possible, intelligible, clear and predictable.
2. Questions of legal right and liability should ordinarily be resolved by application of the law and not of discretion.
3. The laws of the land should apply equally to all, save to the extent that objective differences justify differentiation.
4. Ministers and public officials at all levels must exercise the powers conferred on them in good faith, fairly for the purpose for which the powers were conferred, without exceeding the limits of such powers and not unreasonably.
5. The law must offer adequate protection of fundamental human rights.
6. Means must be provided for resolving, without prohibitive cost or inordinate delay, bona fide civil disputes which the parties themselves are unable to resolve.
7. Adjudicative procedures provided by the state should be fair.
8. The rule of law requires compliance by the state of its obligations in international law as in national law.
