For most of South Africa's recent past, administrative decisions have been shrouded in secrecy. Ordinary people often did not know why or how decisions have been taken to go against them.

Recent legislation and policy has tried to change this, including the Constitution, the Batho Pele White Paper and the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act (PAJA).

The aim of this website is to provide the South African public with information on administrative justice in general and the PAJA Act in particular.

It contains information for the citizen against whom an administrative decision has been taken, as well as guidelines for the administrator who has to take such a decision.

We also hope that the website will become a tool of information for NGOs, CBOs, lawyers, scholars and students, and everybody interested in administrative justice.
