The past two decades have been quite extraordinary ones for Central and Eastern Europe. Similarly, this period has also been a most extraordinary time for the Network of Schools and Institutes of Public Administration of Central and Eastern Europe (NISPAcee) which was established twenty years ago for the purpose of encouraging, assisting and chronicling the transition in the field of public administration which has taken place in the region during this time. The volume, The Past, Present and the Future of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe has been designed to assess both the events that have taken place within the region in terms of the development of effective public administration and the role of NISPAcee in helping to influence and shape these developments. Thus, this book is a celebration, both of the very significant achievements of the past two decades in building and consolidating effective public administration throughout Central and Eastern Europe and of the role of NISPAcee in helping to achieve that goal. As such, it provides both an historical review and insights as regards the future of the region.


The aim of this book is therefore twofold: 1.) we have tried to collect and to present to a broader academic and professional audience some of the most important aspects of the political, administrative, institutional and social transformation of the CEE countries in the last twenty years, as well as the role of NISPAcee in these processes, and: 2.) the book is also trying to collect data and reflections on NISPAcee work, activities and impacts as seen through the eyes of some of the most important individuals who have been closely involved in one or another way in these activities, and who personally have contributed to the NISPAcee success.


Some of these people were from the region and were involved in managing, developing or chairing different working bodies and groups of NISPAcee over the past two decades. Others of them are people from around the world -- representatives of different international organisations, institutions and/or universities who decisively contributed to the development and international recognition of NISPAcee.
