The Working Group on Public Administration Reform focused on the challenges to well-being and the lessons learned in the process of building and consolidating good governance in Europe and beyond. All (16) submitted articles were presented in four sessions, respectively:

1.    Change and Performance in Public Sector: Comparative Insights. This session comprised three papers being presented by, in order of presentation: Jesse Campbell, Incheon National University, Republic of Korea; Ion Muschei, AIC University, Romania and D.C. Iancu, NSPSPA, Romania.
2.    Innovation(s) in Public Sector: Lessons Learned. This session included four papers presented: Judit Szakos, National University of Public Service, Hungary; Emilija Tudzarovska Gjorgjievska, Institute of Sociology, Czech Republic; Michal Sedlacko, University of Applied Science, Austria; and Adriana Cîrciumaru, National Agency of Civil Servants, Romania.
3.    Challenges to Public Sector Development in Europe and Central Asia. There were five papers presented in this session, by: Colin Knox, Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan; Rustamjon Urinboyev, University of Helsinki, Finland; Evgeny Kapoguzov, Omsk State University, Russian Federation; Bianca Radu, Babes-Bolyai University, Romania; and Gyorgy Hajnal, Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary.
4.    Reflections on Public Administration: An Outlook of Theory and Practice. Four papers were presented in this session, by: Liviu Radu, Babes-Bolyai University, Romania; Maciej Pisz, University of Warsaw, Poland; Matus Sloboda, Comenius University, Slovak Republic and Veronica Junjan, University of Twente, The Netherlands.

The engagement of participants (usually 10-15 per each session) in the discussion of PA trends and reflection on resilience and growth scenarios in Europe and Central Asia allowed the group to propose the identification of further means for individual (and/or) institutional cooperation under the umbrella of NISPAcee. The possibility of attracting funding for the Working Group via the next Jean Monnet Call  is under consideration by the co-chairs.
