Research Group for Public Administrative Law

Research group

Research group description

Research group for Public Administrative Law works in University of Eastern Finland. The research group studies public administration, which in Finland is a wide term that covers for instance both public and local authorities. The legal base for public administration is in the Constitution of Finland, where Section 2 states that “in all public activity, the law shall be strictly observed”.  

Public administration affects everyday life of all people and high-quality research data is in a key position to improve and develop regulations considering all public action. We produce research data in a variety of legal research questions in the field of administrative law, considering e.g. municipal administration. The leader of the research group is prof. Tomi Voutilainen.
