G. SGUEO, Interlocutory Coalitions and Administrative Convergence, in E.Chiti, B. Mattarella (eds.), Global Administrative Law and EU Administrative Law. Relationships, Legal Issues and Comparison, Springer 2011
The chapter attempts to understand whether and to what extent the presence of civil society’s actors beyond the State influences the interactions between the European administrative law and the global administrative law. Specific focus is given to civil society networks (here named “interlocutory coalitions”). It is suggested that such networks may be considered a significant factor in spreading interaction and convergence between the European and the global legal spaces. This claim builds off of two subsidiary arguments, one relating to the very notion of administrative convergence, and the other concerned with civil society networks’ potential to develop and enlarge in the future.
