Recourse: Appeals, Reviews, and Other Forms
This chapter examines how recourse relates to procedural fairness. The right to have a decision reviewed, or to appeal from it to a court is important. Extensive resources are expended in providing recourse in one form or another, yet it is not always obvious why a society should do so, or why we should think a right to recourse touches on something fundamental. The answer is simple: recourse from a decision or action by one authority to another is an element of procedural fairness and in turn of fair treatment. In general, the opportunity to have a decision or action re-examined by some form of appeal or review is a central part of procedural fairness.
