The job of the decision-maker is not to assert a social (let alone a personal) interest against the interests of the affected party but rather to promote a social interest consistently with respecting relevant interests of the affected party. On the other hand, 12 LL Fuller, ‘The Forms and Limits of Adjudication’ (1978) 92 Harvard Law Review 353; this article circulated widely in draft form for about 20 years before being published posthumously. 9 Survey reconsideration, internal review and external review are all typically triggered when an affected party disputes a primary decision; but for this very reason, the element of dispute does not enable us to distinguish between these three processes.

In terms of this distinction, the AAT reviews decisions externally. Adopting a different metaphor, the distinction between internal and external review concerns the ‘distance’ between the decision-maker and the reviewer. In these terms, the distinction may be understood as a matter of degree depending on various aspects of the relationship between the decision-maker and the reviewer, including their respective institutional locations. This latter way of thinking about the internal/external distinction may be particularly useful in understanding bodies, such as the Refugee Review Tribunal (RRT) and the Migration Review Tribunal (MRT) in Australia,10 and officials such as ALJs and AJs in the US, that occupy a somewhat equivocal position vis-à-vis the relevant decision-making agency.
