Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the opening remarks given by Ko-Yung Tung at the Conference on international administrative law held in Paris on May 16, 2000. The occasion of the Conference was the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the World Bank Administrative Tribunal. In the twenty years since the decision to establish an Administrative Tribunal for the World Bank Group, this Tribunal has wrestled with some of the most complex, and often intractable, issues that have arisen within the Bank Group. In its first decision the Administrative Tribunal articulated the principles that would serve as the cornerstone for the jurisprudence that would follow in later years. Staff and management have learned from the Tribunal's decisions. They have learned about the legitimate exercise of management discretion, and about abuse of managerial discretion. They have learned about essential elements of employment.
