The papers contained in this book address the on-going themes of the NISPAcee working group on politico-administrative relations. The book represents another step in the ongoing development of our understanding of how governments in Central and Eastern Europe are transforming themselves. The papers in the first section cover familiar themes such as policy making roles, accountability mechanisms and politicisation examining the ways in which politicians and bureaucrats in several countries in Central and Eastern Europe are able to work together to govern, or compete over power within government. Cases on Belgium and Ireland also consider similar patterns in western European countries. Papers on the Baltic countries examine the emerging and increasingly significant patterns of interaction between state and society in Central and Eastern Europe.
