My interest in the relationship between tort law and the implementation of
international human rights standards, particularly the European Convention on
Human Rights, was prompted by a series of cases decided in the last decade that
challenged the English courts to make public authorities accountable for their
actions. Perhaps the most notable was the House of Lords’ decision in X v.
In her Presidential Address to the Head Mistresses Association in 1919,
Miss Reta Oldham pointed out that although women were ‘admitted to
possess considerable organising and administrative gifts’ no woman, so far
as she was aware, occupied an administrative position at the Board of
Education and no Local Authority employed a woman Director of Education.
Administrative law provides many of the safeguards which prevent government
becoming an intolerable evil. It is the purpose of this book to provide an
introduction to administrative law and its control of government power indicating,
wherever possible, the nature of those powers, the purpose of governmental
functions as well as the scope and effectiveness of legal control.

The European Network of Health Promoting Schools (ENHPS) is a practical
example of a health promotion activity that has successfully incorporated the
energies of three major European agencies in the joint pursuit of their goals in
promoting health in schools. The ENHPS had its conceptual origins in the 1980s,

pean Commission, the Council of Europe and the WHO Regional Office for
Europe. Starting with only seven countries, the ENHPS has enlarged over the
years and now has 43 countries as members....
Constitutional conventions are rules of practice considered binding on those to whom
they apply, but they are not legally enforceable. They are of immense importance in
regulating the ways in which the legal framework of the British Constitution is
operated in reality. Good examples of constitutional practice governed by convention
are the office of Prime Minister (not recognised by statute until 1905), the system of
Cabinet government, and the principle that the Sovereign does not refuse royal assent
to Bills passed by Parliament. All these emerged in the 18th century....
In Hungary, the law provides for a three-tiered territorial system of development councils: at the municipality group, county
and county group level. The latter were created to handle the larger decentralised development issues. While the system seemed
a logical approach to development at different levels, it has been criticised for inadequate local (particularly: private sector
and civil society) representation, lack of coordination among tiers, limited decentralisation of financial resources and a lack
of identification of actors with the county groups, which many consider arbitrary.
