New public management and administrative law

University of Sherbrooke Faculty of Law, Room A7-235

This workshop will be presented by Alexandra Bouchard, a master's student in law at the Université de Sherbrooke.

This presentation will focus on the influences of new public management on Canadian administrative law, particularly on the decision-making process of administrative decision-makers. Since the administrative reforms of the early 2000s, various mechanisms from the new public management approach have been put in place in Canadian government. Decision-makers are now borrowing from managerial sciences, in order to decide in the most efficient and effective fashion. As part of this research, the speaker attempts to shed light on the possible influences of this paradigm shift on the decision-making process of administrative decision-makers and to reflect on the possible implications of these changes for judicial review.

The speaker will offer during this workshop some ideas for reflection by presenting the problematic and the theoretical framework of her research project.
