Discussion on Public Administration Reform in Kosovo 14 July 20210

Discussion on Public Administration Reform in Kosovo

On July 14, PIPS held a discussion on the progress of public administration reform in Kosovo.
The discussion brought together researchers, civil society representatives, government representatives and civil servants to talk about the stalemates and proper coordination for the progress of this much-needed reform.

The summary report on public administration reform, prepared by PIPS, was presented during this discussion.

Mrs. Venera Ramaj from the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kosovo, Mr. Valon Gashi from the Office for Political Criteria at the Office of the Prime Minister and Mr. Demush Shasha from the EPIK Institute contributed to the panel.

The main points from the discussion were:
- Lack of political vision and will as well as political instability have impacted the stagnation of this reform;
- The digitalization of public administration should be given special emphasis as part of the reform and for the sake of the benefits that would follow;
- In order to create the momentum for the reform, the coordination between the local and central level should be strengthened;
- This reform should not be seen only as a condition by the EU but also as an opportunity for approximation with the EU.
