Selected Papers from the 17th NISPAcee Annual Conference, Budva 2009

The articles included in this book provide ample evidence of the transformations of the State, especially in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and, more especially, within public administration. Administrative reform has been a persistent theme in the practice of public administration and the articles in this volume demonstrate the importance of these changes within CEE countries, as well as more generally. These chapters also point to the importance of delivering public programmes efficiently and effectively. Several chapters discuss service delivery across a range of policy areas, and especially the need to coordinate and integrate those services to make them more beneficial to the population. The chapters concerned with health care demonstrate the importance of economic resources, as well as the more general problems of delivering public health services. The various chapters on accountability in this volume demonstrate the possibilities, and the difficulties, of creating accountable administration and responsible States.
