Research project

Administrative Justice Virtual Hub

About us

This research project was established in 2014 and funded by the Nuffield Foundation for three years (2014-17) to kick start the expansion of empirical research on administrative justice in the UK. From January 2018, the project is funded by the University of Essex School of Law.

During phase 1 of the project, the primary aim was to consult on and produce a research agenda. During phase 2, the aim is to progress the priorities set out in that research agenda and to work to establish UKAJI’s longer-term role.

UKAJI focuses on issues relating to:

  • the operation of different administrative justice mechanisms
  • encouraging good early decision-making
  • efficiency and effectiveness of administrative justice systems
  • access to justice
  • enforcement and outcomes.
