EAPAA 25 years promoting quality in PA education

In 1999, at the EGPA conference, Prof. Huib de Jong, dean of the University of Twente's Public Administration Faculty, initiated a discussion on establishing quality standards and accreditation for European public administration programs. The idea resonated with attendees, and with support from EGPA and NISPAcee, an association under Dutch law was formed: the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation (established December 13, 1999), with Geert Bouckaert as the first chairman.

the NISPAcee Journal has likewise had its crucial role to play already, when it comes to the conceptualisation of public-administration reforms in Central and Eastern Europe. And that role could become yet more significant in the future, as I feel it would be useful to work further on a conceptualisation of a public-administration model for the Central and Eastern European countries
