At UKAJI, we will be taking a short break for Christmas and new year, and will return with new content in early January 2019. We would like to take the opportunity to warmly thank those who have contributed to UKAJI over the last year, including our writers and readers. We would particularly like to thank Margaret Doyle for all of her work behind the scenes, without whom UKAJI’s growth this year would not have been possible.
If you have any blog posts, book reviews, or research summaries in the area of administrative justice that you would like to publish on the UKAJI blog in the new year, please contact Lee Marsons on firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, here are some topical administrative justice events of importance, which have all been shared on UKAJI’s Twitter feed recently:
- The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman published the findings of its investigation into the Care Quality Commission’s regulation of the Fit and Proper Person requirement for NHS providers on 19th December 2018. This originated from a complaint by a whistle-blower against the Chief Executive of an NHS Trust, who alleged misconduct when the Chief Executive managed another Trust;
- Sarah Nason published an article entitled ‘Administrative justice can make countries fairer and more equal – if it is implemented properly’ for The Conversation on 13th December 2018;
- The Grenfell Tower Inquiry completed Phase One of its investigation on 12th December 2018 which concerned the initial fact-finding aspects of the Inquiry;
- Professor Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, published his investigation into UK poverty on 16th November 2018, which will be of interest to those researching welfare administration, Universal Credit, and social rights.
Once again, thank you for your support and best wishes for the coming new year.
