Abstract

In a world of permanent change and movement with interconnected actions that create interdependences, the institutions and administrative systems should be flexible and transparent to adapt theirselves to these changes and to create the necessary framework for developing in good conditions all the aspects of the social life. In this paper, the attention is focused on the administrative convergence, considering that it is impossible to conceive a strong European construction without the existence of an effective public administration at both levels, national and European, and therefore the research tries to emphasize few signs of convergence between Romanian and Bulgarian employment policy.
