This chapter examines the overarching principles which frame the EU's administrative law. It looks at the meta-principles of democracy, the rule of law, and the protection of fundamental rights. This is followed in more detail by a discussion of principles of very particular relevance for administrative action, such as transparency, legal certainty, and legitimate expectations, as well as the rights of defence and the principles underpinning the concept of good administration.

Keywords:   EU, democracy, rule of law, rights protection, administrative action, transparency, legal certainty, defence
