Serbia Scores a Weak Two in Professionalisation of Public Administration
In this document we analyse Serbia’s score for the Public Service and Human Resource Management and present scores of other Western Balkan countries. The area of public service is analysed through seven principles which are recognised as necessary preconditions for the establishment of professional public administration and merit-based civil service system.
Human resources at the local level
Public administration reform in Serbia, having entered a new stage with the endorsement of the Public Administration Reform Strategy and its Action Plan for implementation, aims, inter alia, at establishing a harmonised and merit-based civil service system and at improving human resource management.
(Un)success of Public Administration Reform in Serbia
In the recently published Serbia 2016 Report made by the European Commission, at the first sight, Serbia receives a positive assessment in the field of public administration reform. An encouraging fact is that public administration reform has been labelled as an area with the progress achieved.
