NIG Colloquium: The Politics and Governance of Administrative Reform in Central and Eastern Europe
The Colloquium aims to bring together a group of NIG scholars from the Netherlands and Belgium to explore and reflect on the politics and governance of administrative reform in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The Colloquium will analyse the role of external, and especially European, forces in driving administrative reforms in CEE, and the mechanisms through which administrative reforms are stimulated through external governance. The role of internal factors, such as the bureaucratic politics of domestic actors, institutional constraints or legacies of the communist regime, in administrative reforms in Eastern Europe is taken into account as well.
The Colloquium will organise workshops at the Universities of Maastricht (The international politics of administrative reform in CEE) and Twente (The domestic politics of administrative reform in CEE), as well as networking events at the Brussels Campus of Maastricht University. It is funded by a Colloquium Grant from the Netherlands Institute of Government (NIG) (EUR 10.000, 2011-13).
