EAPAA Certification Panel (Roundtable)


Since public administration programmes are different in nature, EAPAA awards two different types of quality evaluation:

(a) Accreditation

(b) Certification


Certification represents a lighter procedure at lower costs. Certification may, but must not serve, as a first step towards accreditation, depending on the internal decision of the evaluated programme. Accreditation is a more comprehensive and also more costly external quality evaluation process.

The goal of this panel will be to discuss the perspectives of EAPAA accreditation and certification in the CEE region. The specific goal of the panel will be to discuss the relations between accreditation and certification, the way in which we decide when to apply for certification as the final goal, certification as the pre-step towards accreditation or directly for accreditation.

EAPAA, the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation, is Europe's foremost accreditation agency in the field of public administration. It was founded in 1999 by the European public administration community to raise the quality of academic degree programmes in public administration through accreditation. One of its aims is to encourage discussion about the evolution of our public administration programmes.
