Consideration 4

Extract:

"The Director-General enjoys wide discretion in the matter of renewal of a fixed-term appointment and the Tribunal will exercise only a limited power of review. It will, moreover, show special restraint when a decision not to renew rests on appraisal by the staff member's own supervisors: because of their technical qualifications and familiarity with his work and personal attributes they are, after all, best fitted to advise the Director-General."
