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.

NISPAcee Tribute to Allan Rosenbaum, the NISPAcee Merit Award Holder

With great sadness, we share the news that Allan Rosenbaum, our dear friend and close professional partner, passed away on March 17, 2024, following a brief illness. His extraordinary contribution to the NISPAcee development within the first decade of the organization’s existence was recognized by the presentation of the NISPAcee Merit Award to him in 2010. His continual collaborative efforts and commitment to NISPAcee, following its mission, and meeting its objectives were highly beneficial to the organization and participating individuals during the ensuing years. NISPAcee is genuinely thankful for his partnership, friendship and open-minded long-term cooperation. He deserves our respect and recognition for his extensive efforts, leadership, accomplishments, and consistency in believing and promoting democratic values, the implementation of which is still a great challenge in the NISPAcee region. Equally important, what NISPAcee valued, was his outstanding personality, kind human approach, openness, and constant concern for serving the community.
