The Economic and Social Impact of Public Administration Europeanization


  • Matei, Lucica
  • Matei, Ani


In the current paper, we aim to formulate the objectives, contents and syllabus of a discipline that will approach the complex issue of evaluating the economic and social impact of public administration Europeanization in a methodological and educational way. The research topic is new on one hand, determined by the behaviour novelty of EU against the Member States, which have a founding status, or new EU adhering countries (2007) and vice versa the behaviour of Member States towards the EU in different development stages, and on the other hand, the topic has outgrown the full age and started the biological maturity process with every EU enlargement stage. The general directions and mechanisms supporting the above activity will be as follows: - Multidisciplinary approach of the Europeanization processes, describing the systemic mechanisms of development, adjustment and self-adjustment, specific for the convergence and dynamics of national public administrations. - Evaluating the economic and social impact of national public administrations Europeanization by substantiating statistic models and relevant socio-economic indicators. - Making operational a theoretical and empirical framework by means of significant analyses, methodologies and case studies for the topic approached. We aim to evaluate the economic and social impact through: - Quantitative and qualitative indicators in view to determine the degree of administrative and economic convergence. - Framework models of organisational analysis for Europeanization of representative institutions in national, central or local governments. - Socio-economic indicators and models aimed at determining the costs of bureaucracy and correlating their trends with the economic performance. - Statistic indicators concerning the influence of the meritocratic criteria in the civil service development on the economic growth and public sector performance.
