The present collection of edited contributions focuses on some of the key contemporary challenges to public administration in the region. Besides such important topics as local governance, the role of strategic coordination units in the central governments and political obstacles to reform and organisational culture, particular emphasis is placed on the implementation of the EU’s regional policy, the education and training of civil servants and corruption.
