2 Foreword by Johannes Hahn Foreword by Johannes Hahn The European Commission (EC) is ensuring a strong focus on addressing fundamental reforms early in the enlargement process. This approach contributes to strengthening the credibility of enlargement policy and enhancing its transformative power. Public administration reform (PAR) is a pillar of the enlargement process, together with rule of law and economic governance. All three pillars are closely linked, cross cutting issues of fundamental importance for success in political and economic reforms and building a basis for implementing European Union (EU) rules and standards. A well functioning public administration is necessary for democratic governance. It also directly impacts upon governments’ ability to provide public services and to foster competitiveness and growth. PAR should lead to enhanced transparency, accountability and effectiveness , and ensure a greater focus on the needs of citizens and business. An adequately managed and professional civil service, better policy planning and co - ordination, sound administrative procedures and improved public financial management are of fundamental importance for the functioning of the state and for implementing the reforms needed for EU integration. Countries need to increase their efforts to improve their public administrations at all levels on the basis of national strategies. A strong political commitment is needed to steer the reform process.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
