• (Un)success of Public Administration Reform in Serbia

    In the recently published Serbia 2016 Report made by the European Commission, at the first sight, Serbia receives a positive assessment in the field of public administration reform. An encouraging fact is that public administration reform has been labelled as an area with the progress achieved.

    However, a more detailed reading of the report reveals certain deficiencies of the system, especially regarding depoliticisation and professionalisation of public administration, the introduction of a merit-based recruitment system, improvement of public policy making, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, et cetera. In the new issue of CEP Insight, we analyse the EC’s assessment of Serbia’s results in the field of public administration reform – one of the pillars of the Enlargement Strategy alongside the rule of law and economic governance.
