Human resources at the local level

The most important link for quality public services

Public administration reform in Serbia, having entered a new stage with the endorsement of the Public Administration Reform Strategy and its Action Plan for implementation, aims, inter alia, at establishing a harmonised and merit-based civil service system and at improving human resource management.

With endorsement of the PAR Strategy, Serbia defined its strategic framework and direction of a broader public administration reform, which encompasses all levels of governance. The Strategy defines the principles of the reform process emphasising decentralisation, depoliticisation, professionalisation, rationalisation and modernisation of public administration.

This is third Policy Brief that has been made within Partnership for Public Administration Reform and Public Services in Serbia – PARtnerships, two-year project implemented by two main partners – European Policy Centre (CEP) and European Movement in Serbia (EMinS).
