This concluding contribution of the Special Issue briefly introduces the Federal and Flemish administrative loops and their other national “look-a-likes”. Thereafter, the objections raised by the Belgian Constitutional Court will be presented and analysed in light of the possible implications for the other legal systems presented in this Special Issue, namely Italy, Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands. The contribution shows that all legal systems need to delicately balance efficiency and the protection of fundamental rights. Furthermore, while speedier decision-making and dispute resolution is a shared aim of the legal systems presented, the solutions found to protect individuals’ rights (and the intensity to which this is a concern at all) can vary quite significantly.
