Abstract

While the agencification process in Western democracies has attracted enormous scholarly interest in the last two decades, the development of public-sector organizations in Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries has received very little attention so far. In addition, an overwhelming majority of existing public-administration research in CEE consists of single-country case studies. It can even be said that a tradition of comparative studies is missing in public-administration scholarship in CEE. In this general context, the research network to which the authors in this book belong has provided a much-needed framework for, first of all, starting systematic studies of public-sector organization (and agencies in particular) and, second, for carrying out empirical studies based on common methodology, thus enabling comparisons both within CEE and beyond this region.
