This chapter considers the formation of statehood, administration, and administrative law in Germany in the context of the European legal space. Comparative law in this context requires attention being paid to elements of identity and difference that must be studied in light of the questions it poses. Thus, this chapter begins by tracking the path of statehood, administration, and administrative law in Germany up to the adoption of the Basic Law (Grundgesetz). This is done in order to present an historical means with which to comprehend the present European legal space. The chapter then presents the development of administrative law under this law, and in closing, discusses understandings of administrative law.
