The French association for administrative law  (AFDA) is a learned society that has been created in June 2006 as a non-for profit organization.
The dynamism and richness of French research in administrative law are indisputable. There is not any part from this branch of law that is not, every year, studied by numerous and noticeable individual researchers or group works. However, in a context of profound transformation of administrative law, its influence does not seem sufficiently assured.
If the scientist group work would not take precedence over individual work, it must be regarded as its indispensable complement. A confrontation of scientists’ developments and a high-level dialogue should allow developing news proposals and more relevant perspectives.
The development and influence of French administrative law necessarily pass through enhanced collaboration among all those committed to the study and knowledge of this discipline.
The creation of the French association for administrative law (AFDA) will facilitate this collaboration and encourage all initiatives promoting the French administrative law.
Following the example of similar societies in France and abroad, the AFDA aims to contribute to the development of research in this discipline.
It seeks to promote the organization of group work (symposiums, seminars, conferences, debates, laboratory networks, ...) and distribution (creating an specialised book collection) as well as supporting individual work, particularly those of young researchers (PhD prize).
