Administrative rules: rules versus individual acts; the blurring of the distinction; rules that make law and rules that make policy. Administrative rule-making - the institutional framework: rule-making by the administration; rule-making by private entities; negotiated rule-making. The rule-making process and the public: open government; the public - individuals, interest groups and technical experts; general participation of the public in the rule-making process - the American notice-and-comment procedures and the European preference to ad hoc solutions; a contrast with the opportunities for participation in particular policy areas - the example of English and German planning; specific opportunities for public participation in rule-making;private regulation and public participation; comparative evaluation - the effectiveness of the existing system of participation, characteristics, problems and inefficiencies. Participation in rule-making - the contribution of the courts: United States; Germany; Greece; England; comparative evaluation - the effectiveness of different judicial review systems in enforcing public participation in rule-making. Participation in rule-making and constitutional theory: theoretical impediments prohibiting the incorporation of public participation in the constitutional systems examined; public participation as a means for enhancing legitimacy in government; the limits of participation.
