Agenda "Public administration reforms in Kosovo" 20 March 2018 - English

  1. 1. Public Administration Reform in Kosovo: Civil Service Reforms, Accountable State Structures and Public Finance Controls Pristina, 20 March 2018 How is Kosovo doing in terms of modernising its public administration and making it more accountable to and effective for its citizens compared to the past and the region? Is Kosovo meeting the expectations of the EU enlargement process in this area? The launch of the SIGMA 2017 Monitoring Report provides an opportunity for experts, Government officials, civil society representatives and international actors to discuss the state of play and the way forward. A high-level panel will link these efforts to the broader EU Enlargement context, discuss whole-of- government approaches for effective policy making, high-performing civil service, accountable state structures and prudent use of public finances. The event is open to all, but only upon registration.
