The focus area has two areas of concern, namely the study of administrative justice in public administration and the study of ethics in public administration. The study of administrative justice in public administration deals with the demands made by administrative justice on public institutions and on public officials as individuals. Here the importance of administrative justice, as a determining factor in administrative action and decisionmaking as well as the exercise of administrative discretion, is driven

4 home. The purpose of the focus area is to stimulate thinking and research on matters of administrative justice and public administration issues that have implications for justice. This is an opportunity to embark on comprehensive research of administrative justice in all its fascinating facets. Consequently, research proposals related to the principles of administrative justice namely lawfulness, reasonableness, procedural fairness and the duty to provide reasons for administrative action in public administration will be welcomed in this focus area. The study of ethics in public administration brings the question of an integrated concept of ethics to the fore. As role players exercising public administration, public officials and public office bearers, need to master the theory, methodology and laws relating to this practice in order to function within the boundaries in which government action can take place. Public officials have a professional responsibility towards society to provide the highest level of service at all times. The purpose of the focus area is to stimulate thinking and research on matters of whether public administration, as exercised by public officials, adheres to traditional values of democracy such as responsibility and accountability as stated in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996, and whether public officials are aware of their actions being ethically correct and permissible. Consequently, research proposals related to the principles of democracy such as responsibility and accountability in public administration will be welcomed in this focus area.
