Getting the fundamentals right: public administration reform in the Western Balkans

16 June 2015

On 16 June, the EPC in cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) invited three prominent figures with direct involvement in the public administration reform process in the Western Balkans to a Policy Dialogue focusing on their efforts. The activities of the European Commission and EU hopefuls in the Balkans were deliberated in order to assess whether the actions of both sides towards achieving the reforms required have been mutually reinforcing, and what the key successes and challenges have been so far.
