Administrative justice is arguably a broader topic than that of administrative law - encompassing as it might understandings of culture, organisational change, and bureaucracy, not to mention political philosophy. Nonetheless, administrative law itself has become broader in South Africa of late - now encompassing topics such as access to information and whistle-blowing protection that could not have been taught at any length previously. Adopting the viewpoint that administrative law and justice by necessity overlap, this paper has two related aims. The first is to investigate the current state of the South African access to information regime. The second is to tentatively identify three waves of administrative justice that have washed over South African shores. The paper concludes by assessing the most significant set of drivers of change within the information regime with particular attention to their transnational character.
