There are two core principles in the law and ethics of biomedical research that could be considered universally accepted: first, all handling of personal data and human biological samples is conditioned by the informed consent of the individual involved; second, all medical research on human biological samples and personal data should be placed under the review of research ethics committees. These concepts are included in international, regional and national guidelines, rules and regulations for processing of data and biobanking. However, the legal implementations are carried out within each national legal order, by national organs enacting administrative decisions applicable within the state. In order for the research project to function in a multinational setting, the eu has developed soft law tools and governance mechanisms to facilitate European biomedical research. The question is whether this can be considered valuable and legitimate on the grounds of enhancing conditions for medical research.

From having been a legal discipline with a predominantly national perspective, administrative law has increasingly become influenced and affected by the general trends of globalization in modern society. Globalization in general and Europeanization in particular have resulted in a multitude of economic and social contacts across borders, within and between commercial and personal, as well as public and private spheres. Globalization has thus led to a need to find new and adapted administrative law solutions. This changed legal landscape for administrative law is a reality that nearly all lawyers active within the field of administrative law have to relate to in their work.

In this book we have gathered a number of prominent scholars who analyze the developments of administrative law from their respective perspective. The papers were first presented at a colloquium at the Faculty of Law at Uppsala University in March 2012. The aim of the colloquium was to increase our own understanding of the processes of globalization within administrative law and to learn from each other. By publishing the papers, we hope that the knowledge gained there can be passed on to a wider group of interested scholars and practicing lawyers.

The contributions to this book are divided into three parts; Governance and procedures, Administrative law within and beyond Europe and Theoretical approaches. The book opens with a paper by Lena Marcusson, Professor of Administrative Law, Uppsala University, which also served as the introduction to the colloquium in 2012.
