Public administration reform in Visegrad Countries: Lessons for Belarus and Ukraine

The Association for International Affairs (Prague) in collaboration with the School of Young Managers in Public Administration (Minsk), Centre for Political and Legal Reforms (Kyiv), Pontis Foundation (Bratislava), Polish-Ukrainian Cooperation Foundation (Warsaw) and the Hungarian Europe Society (Budapest) with the support of the Visegrad Fund has launched a project to present good practices and lessons learned by the Visegrad countries public administration reforms to young professionals from Ukraine and Belarus. The project produced research papers presenting the public administration reforms of each Visegrad country, provided opportunity to experts from Ukraine and Belarus to visit public institutions of the Visegrad countries for both a study trip and a short internship.

The Budapest Institute was commissioned by the Hungarian Europe Society to prepare the research paper on the lessons and good practices of Hungarian public administration. The paper gives insight into the Hungarian public administration system and presents two case studies that serve as positive examples of public administration reform steps: the Integrity against Corruption Project of the Hungarian State Audit Office and the strategy-driven institutional development of the Hungarian Competition Authority.
