SREBALOVÁ, M.: The principle of educational influence in administrative proceedings. (Inauguration lecture).

Abstract. The article is focused on a meaning, content and expresion of the principle of educational influence in the administrative proceedings. Educational influence by the administrative authorities on parties to the proceedings significantly influences the functioning of the whole society and specifically this concerns the fulfillment of public administration tasks. The principle of educational influence within the framework of the basic rules of general administrative proceedings, under the Act No. 71/1967 on Administrative Proceedings required the administrative authorities to strengthen the citizensʹ confidence in the correctness of the decision and also to make the decisions convincing. Such content reflects the principle that the administrative authorities should act convincingly. The significance of the analyzed principle is confronted with trends in the development of the public administration and of the administrative law in terms of the conditions of the Slovak Republic in connection with the development of European public administration. It is characterized in particular by the fulfillment of the claims contained in the concept of good administration, but also by the crisis of trust in public institutions. In this regard, the article highlights in particular, the persistant problem of the absence of adequate legal regulation of the administrative punishment in Slovak circumstances. Such a regulation, as well as a general regulation of administrative procedure should reflect common European values and the specific values and goals of administrative proceedings of each state as well. Incorporation of the principle of convincingness between their basic rules would be consistent with a preventive role of the public administration and the effective fulfillment of its tasks.

Key words: principle of educational influence, principle of convincingness, principles of the functioning of administrative authorities, administrative proceeding
