La citoyenneté administrative

Abstract : Recent discussion in Administrative Law has begun to re-examine the relationship between public administration and citizenship. It is recognition of public administration’s important civic role beyond formal administration. It is, as well, recognition that the dimensions of an “Administrative Citizenship” are subject to new realities, and, where, perhaps, the notion of citizen in public law, traditionally associated primarily with nationality and electoral rights, is also due for re-examination. In researching the history of these constructs of citizen and “administré”, it is seen that 19th century doctrine made little distinction. Therefore the recent developments are more a re-convergence than an innovation. Yet still these developments have had to contend with such new realities, political and social, which have established that “Administrative Citizenship” no longer totally excludes non-nationals. Administrative Citizenship consists in the proffering of a series of rights to the “administré”. A real power is accorded to them as well by the renewed participation in a greater variety of forms of administrative proceedings. In a sense there is an evolution in what is considered due to the Administrative Citizen. It is shifting the focus from a strict procedural duty, to a broader public accountability, and, perhaps, further to a duty to enhance the participatory experience of the citizen in public administration.
