Proceedings from the second NISPAcee civil service forum held in Maastricht, The Netherlands, October 28-29, 1999

The main objective of the Forum was to help CEE countries to develop policies to support comprehensive training delivery for the public administration sector, by bringing together administrators and training providers from the region, and from the Member States of the EU, for professional exchanges and discussions. The main body of the programme comprised two workshops, the first centred on the issues of Government/Citizen relationship, and the second on Impact of Openness on Administration
