Academic Fellows 2019 

 

Dr Sarah Nason (Bangor University) will examine, and make recommendations to enhance, the Assembly's role in scrutinising the developing Welsh system of administrative justice.  This system is made up of various different bodies (including tribunals, complaint handlers, commissioners, courts and more), it is concerned with the laws surrounding public body decision-making, the resolution of disputes between individuals and public bodies, and how these can be learnt from to improve public services provision.

The four objectives of the fellowship are to:

  • improve awareness of administrative justice and its connection to the constituency work of Assembly Members
  • research and report on options for ensuring greater accountability of administrative justice institutions to the Assembly
  • research and report on how a consistent approach can be taken to matters of administrative justice in Assembly legislation
  • examine connections between administrative justice principles and human rights in Wales informing discussions around a developing Welsh human rights law and Assembly oversight of human rights issues.

Dr Nason's blog article Ensuring Fair and Lawful Administration in Wales: the Role of Administrative Justice was published in October 2019. 

 

  

Dr Roiyah Saltus (University of South Wales) will gather evidence on:

  • conceptualisations of, and interventions to reduce loneliness among older migrant and/or minority ethnic population groups. and
  • interventions (programmes, initiatives or projects) that tackle loneliness, both those tailored explicitly to the target populations, and generic interventions that include minority and migrant older people).

 This is rooted in the National Assembly's wider focus on wellbeing, improved public health, and community cohesion – with a more specific (but not exclusive) need to add value to both the development of the Welsh Government's loneliness strategy and its subsequent rolling-out.
