Government and governance

Who is liable in case of flooding? Is the award of that public contract permissible?

Administrative law describes the rules that the government must adhere to when making its decisions. In essence, it is the law that traditionally governs the relationship between the government and its subordinates, which are both private individuals and companies.

  • how do you proceed to dispute examination results?
  • Whom can a civil servant who is the subject of a disciplinary sanction approach?
  • who is liable in case of flooding?
