A caring public administration? Revisiting the values of tribunal adjudication for access to administrative justiceFeb 8, 2023- 12:45 pm — 1:45 pm Farris Hall, Room 106 and Virtually
This article builds on and contributes to theoretical reflections on administrative justice values and a relational public administration.

This argument is based on interviews with former and current adjudicators who have experience in health, residential tenancies, social security, worker’s compensation, human rights, immigration and refugee law in Canada.

Sue Big Oil is a collaboration of ordinary British Columbians concerned about harmful climate change impacts in BC communities, and the skyrocketing costs for BC’s local governments and taxpayers. Given the role of the fossil fuel industry in knowingly causing climate change and blocking policies and actions to address climate change, we urge our local governments to take legal action to force the world’s largest fossil fuel companies to pay their fair share of climate costs.
