The European Policy Centre has a great pleasure to announce the regional conference Improving Performance of Public Administration: Current Experiences and Future Perspectives, which will be held on 9-10 September 2015 at the Zira Hotel in Belgrade.
The conference aims to open a regional debate on the public administration performance in the Western Balkan countries. A special focus will be placed on the role and significance of performance audit and policy evaluation for the improvement of policy making and achieving better public administration in the context of the EU accession process.
The conference will host various panel discussions with renowned participants representing civil society, state institutions and international organisations and networks. A comparative regional policy study produced by CEP and its partners within TEN (Think for Europe Network) will be presented, containing research findings on the level of performance audit development and policy evaluation (as well as possibilities for their linkage) in Serbia, Macedonia and Montenegro. In addition, public administration scholars and researchers from around the Europe will share national experiences in public administration reform by presenting high quality research papers and discussing their findings in the organised working groups.
The Conference is being organised within the project Performance Audit and Policy Evaluation: On the Same or Parallel Tracks supported by the Regional Research Promotion Programme in the Western Balkans (RRPP), financed by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC). CEP is project holder while partners are other TEN members: Institut Alternativa from Podgorica and European Policy Institute from Skopje.
The official hashtag of the conference is #TENConference2015.
We look forward to welcoming you this September!
