Panel: Public Service Reform in the Post-Soviet Countries

Related to Panel: Public Service Reform in the Post-Soviet Countries
Chair: Alikhan Baimenov, Chairman of the Steering Committee, Astana Civil Service Hub, Astana, Kazakhstan

The Astana Civil Service Hub (ACSH), a joint initiative of the Government of Kazakhstan and UNDP, was established in March 2013 by 25 countries and 5 international organizations to serve as a multilateral platform for the continuous exchange of experience and knowledge in the field of public service development. Currently ACSH is comprising 40 participating countries and more than 35 partner organizations.

The ACSH’s mission is to assist in promoting public service effectiveness by supporting the efforts of governments of countries of the region and beyond in building institutional and human capacity. This mission is implemented based on three main pillars:
•    Partnerships and networking;
•    Capacity building and peer-to-peer learning;
•    Research and knowledge management.

The establishment of public service in the CIS and Caucasus countries is closely connected with the transformation of the role of the state after independence in 1991. Even though the common purpose of reforms for all countries was to build an effective public service, in fact, each country has followed its own unique path in the design and implementation the public service reform agendas. This is precisely why countries, despite the relatively similar starting positions, have achieved the different type of results.

Now is the time to assess the progress made, to draw lessons learnt, and to identify actual problems. Moreover, many methodological aspects of the reforms of the public service of post-socialist countries are insufficiently researched, and it is needed systematically and continuously generate the knowledge.

The main objective of the panel session is to discuss the lessons learned, best practices, as well as to provide participants to share the experience and find the ways to tackle common issues.
