Dornburg Research Group

In the various European countries, debates on the transformation of administrative law are held from a national perspective and with different intensity. Given the considerable effects such discussion may have on the methods of administrative legal scholarship, an analysis of these developments in a European context promises valuable results.

For this purpose, a long term transnational exchange of ideas between administrative law scholars from England, France and Germany has been initiated in Dornburg castle, near Jena, Germany. In 2007, scholars from Italy and Spain have joined the group, and in addition a member each of the Netherlands and Sweden.
