In the current context, where more and more authoritarian governments in the world, it is urgent to have an Administrative Law that can control these governments. From the theoretical perspective, this task seems urgent, inasmuch as, for the most part, theories on the control of state administration tend to be at one of the following extremes. One theory is that the administration should be as bound as possible, in such a way that it does not threaten this freedom. A second theory conceives the administration as a space to advance in the satisfaction of society's demands, where the administration should be left with the greatest possible margin of action, so that it is effective in the satisfaction of these demands. The question that arises then, is how to achieve a theory that recognizing the administration's margin of action necessary to implement the law and be sensitive to social demands, allows in turn to control the eventual outbursts it commits?
