The paper synthetically tackles the institutional, normative and functional framework resulting from the reforms of the national public administrations of the South-Eastern European states, aiming at the administrative convergence. Approached in a double-folded manner, both theoretical and empirical, the important topics on which the paper focuses are: relevant features of administrative convergence and their singularity in certain South-Eastern European states; strengthening the European Administrative Space as support for the administrative convergence processes; the adjoining processes of the administrative convergence: Europeanization and administrative dynamics; models of the national public administration reform and the context in which these are carried on in the South-Eastern European states.
The empirical perspective provided by this study is based on quantitative and qualitative analyses on the democratic processes, national and local governance, integrity and corruption as well as civil service.
The paper turns to account researches carries on by the Doctoral School in Administrative Sciences of the Faculty of Public Administration of the National School of Political Studies and Public Administration in Bucharest, as well as the studies and research reports of the “Jean Monnet” project “South-Eastern European developments on the administrative convergence and enlargement of the European Administrative Space in Balkan states.”
