Public Administration Europeanization. South-Eastern European Trends and Comparative Analysis


Author Info

  • Matei, Lucica


Europeanization, as global process, undergoes an increasing enlargement, comprising both EU Member States and South-Eastern European states. The geo-political aspects and democratic traditions influence directly the Europeanization process, conferring both national specific elements and issues of compatibility, thus triggering various convergence levels for the social reform processes, determined by Europeanization. Referring to public administration, the actual study achieves a comparative analysis on the fundamental processes of democratization and enhancement of effectiveness in the context of deepening the Europeanization process of public administration and civil service in the European states. The analysed target group comprises Balkan states (Romania, Bulgaria), Western Balkan states (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovenia, and Montenegro) as well as states that belonged to the former Soviet Union (Armenia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus). The main criteria of analysis refer to assessing the democratic processes, central and local governance, integrity and corruption, as well as civil service. The research methods take into account relevant bibliographical research as well as evaluations and socio-statistic analyses.
