The book analyses the administrative system in the European Union with a focus on the efficiency and legitimacy of the administrative practices. The administrative system of the European Union is described as a hybrid between a traditional national and an international administration. In the analysis three distinct theoretical perspectives are used (a structural, a procedural and a cultural), thus ensuring that a broad variety of factors are included. Furthermore, in the analysis the administration is seen from the perspective of an individual Eurocrat, but, simultaneously, the overall institutional perspective is maintained by a focus on the effects of the special characteristics of the administrative practices on the efficiency and legitimacy of the administration.

The Use of Canon Law in Ecclesiastical Administration, 1000–1234 explores the integration of canon law within administration and society in the central Middle Ages. Grounded in the careers of ecclesiastical administrators, each essay serves as a case study that couples law with social, political or intellectual developments. Together, the essays seek to integrate the textual analysis necessary to understand the evolution and transmission of the legal tradition into the broader study of twelfth century ecclesiastical government and practice. The essays therefore both place law into the wider developments of the long twelfth century but also highlight points of continuity throughout the period.

Law and Management Practices in International Organisations

Chris de Cooker

International Administration: Law and Management Practices in International Organisations describes the law and practice of the internal functioning of international organizations. It deals with questions such as recruitment and retention policies of the staff of international organizations, the differing environments in which these employees work, their privileges and immunities, staff representation, and the judicial remedies open to staff. It also deals with such topics as social security and pensions, the relationship between the heads of the organizations and Member States in staff and administrative matters, the administrative coordination between organizations, and the need for reform in times of (financial) crisis. The contributors all have a wide experience in international administration.
