Extract

In the history of recent administrative law enforcement, the administrative organs bring about the self-restraint of discretionary power through the design of a regularized discretion standard. This standard has received attention from both academia and practitioners of administrative law in China. However, the theoretical inconsistency and diverse practice about how to define the discretionary standard practically in the administrative legal system has become a significant problem.

Therefore, this article carries out a preliminary study of the theory of administrative self-restraint, defining amongst other issues its nature, function, and boundaries.
