Proceedings from the 15th NISPAcee annual conference held in Kyiv, Ukraine, May 17-19, 2007 contains selected papers.
The main theme was leadership and management in the public sector and how to build a strong public service. While the critical and decisive role of leadership and management in the public sector is almost a cliché, the reality is that there is relatively little knowledge available about the transformation of the earlier dominant and politically determined CEE public leadership into a new, professional, democratic, managing leadership in the post-communist era. Likewise, there is only limited knowledge of how the newly emerged politico-administrative dichotomy in the region has influenced the formation of its managing leadership and how this dichotomy, in turn, has been influenced by the region’s leadership and managers.
