On the defence of professionalism of bureaucrats: A discussion upon the protection mechanisms of civil service in Kosovo

May 5, 2012

In general, a professional civil service system and independent functioning of bureaucracy is reliant upon mechanisms (both internal and external) as well as institutions that are able to set up and assure the application of best personnel management practices. That being said, it is important for countries aiming to remodel their public administrations to adopt policies that attempt enhancing the independence of institutions authorized to decide questions of personnel within civil service. Thus, this Policy Analysis has a two-fold aim. First, it briefly presents an overview of the bodies within Kosovo civil service that are authorized to protect the civil service system independence and professionalism, namely, internal mechanisms and the Independent Oversight Board. And second, this Policy Analysis goes on to explain the problems and challenges that these bodies face while performing their entrusted functions. In the end, we deliver a number of policy solutions aiming to enhance as well as develop the protection mechanisms for civil servants.
