Description

In the region of the Western Balkans, Serbia and Montenegro are candidate countries of the European Union and European Commission is predicting that they could become members of the European Union by 2025. The accession of member states to the European Union cannot be discussed without the explanation of the term of Europeanisation. In the paper it will be shown what Europeanisation is, and the way that countries must change on their national level. The process of Europeanisation is long and complicated, candidate countries must adopt and implement all the rules of the European Union. Important changes also need to be made in the public administration of candidate countries. An important role in the process of changing the public administrations and governance in the candidate countries have European Commission and SIGMA. SIGMA has developed set of principles of Public Administration for EU candidate countries and potential countries. Those principles are the foundation of the Public Administration Reform that has been going on in the countries of the Western Balkans. Progress reports of the European Commission and Monitoring and Assessment reports of SIGMA are showing how candidate countries are approaching the Public Administration Reform and what kind of progress they have made in Public Administration over the years. The aim of this research is to show some of the changes in Public Administration that have been made in Serbia and Montenegro through the process of accession to the European Union.
