Proceedings from the High Level Meeting held in Prague, Czech Republic, December 18-20, 2003

The main purpose of the Meeting was to bring together high civil servants from the ten Central and Eastern European countries preparing themselves to join the European Union, and top academics, both from the West and the East, to discuss the problems and challenges of strategic governance in the region. The volume comprises seven papers presented at the Meeting by the group of both Western and Eastern scholars and conclusions, passed at the end of the meeting. It offers the core message to the politicians, civil servants, and scholars in the region how to adjust priorities, approaches, institutional frameworks and tools to the enormous challenges the governance will have to cope with in the future.
