Seminar

Theory and Practice of the Policy Cycle:

From Drafting to Evaluating Policies

organised by the

European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA)

Tirana (Republic of Albania), 18 – 21 May 2010

PROVISIONAL PROGRAMME

During the last decade, the process of policy-making has undergone

significant changes: Governments have become increasingly aware that in a

modern society that they are evaluated not only by the policies and laws that they

adopt, but also by the level and quality of the administration and enforcement of the

policies and laws. Governments have thus realised that the successful development

and implementation of policies and law rely on close co-operation and

consultations with not only political groupings, but also the market and civil society.

An added challenge for politicians and public administrations is the influence of

European Integration (i.e. the Stability and Association Process as well as EU

Accession) on the national policy and rule-making in the sense that the scope for

manoeuvre is limited while the obligations on governments and administrations are

increased in order to meet the requirements agreed in the SAA and to become a

member of the EU.

These changes have implications for civil servants in terms of knowledge as well as

processes, skills and attitudes. Starting a process of communication in an early

stage of the policy process with groups with (frequently) conflicting interests, dealing

with conflicts, media, etc., demands well developed coordination processes and

organisational and social skills.

Growing emphasis has also been given to assessing the impact of the policies and

rules through monitoring and evaluation of their effect on the society (i.e. people,

environment, economy, etc.) as well as on the effectiveness of the implementation

hereof (e.g. the level and quality of service offered to as well as equal treatment of

the citizens).

The objective of this 4-day seminar is two-fold: Firstly, to provide a practical

understanding of the new demands to governments and public administrations as

well as new concepts and approaches related to policy-making, implementation and

evaluation. And secondly, to share practical experiences and acquire practical

tools/methods, which can be applied in the different stages of the policy cycle.

Target group

The seminar targets public sector managers and senior civil servants involved in the

policy-making process.

The seminar will be delivered by a team of trainers from EIPA and experts from

national administrations from both old and new EU Member States in order to ensure

transfer not only theoretical concepts and practical skills, but also a proper exchange

of practical experiences and identification of good practices.
