Chapter 2: Conducting experiments and surveys in the field of administrative justice: on the importance of fair procedures in governance
In this chapter we show readers the important aspects that empirical researchers have to take into consideration when designing experiments and surveys within often complex real-life contexts pertaining to administrative law. By taking the legitimacy of administrative decision making as the central object of investigation, we provide an overview of the challenges and choices one faces when conducting experiments, so that scholars get a better grasp of the necessary steps in the empirical process. In doing so, we highlight both the benefits and limitations of conducting experiments by contrasting the method with correlational survey research.
