Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the introductory remarks given by A. Kamal Abul-Magd 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. One does not have to adopt the classical French distinction between compétence liée and pouvoir discrétionnaireto recognize that the scope of review in any international tribunal does indeed vary according to the amount of discretion allocated or given to the administration itself. More specifically, when it comes to discretionary power, one must determine whether the principle referred to in all decisions of administrative tribunals - namely that they review but do not substitute their own judgment for that of management - is in fact respected.
