Taking Responsibility for Practice:
the EGPA Policy Papers on European Governance
It is central to the EGPA mission to take responsibility for practice: research and scientific knowledge is also required to have an impact on institutions and society. It is for this reason that EGPA promotes a series of policy papers addressing the key issues of the European Governance and public administration in Europe. The EGPA Policy Papers on European Governance.
Prepared by EGPA scholars (active in the EGPA Permanent Study Groups, in the projects hosted by EGPA, or other EGPA-related venues), the Policy Papers are discussed with practitioners and policy-makers, on occasion of major events promoted by EGPA or where EGPA representatives are invited, before being published on the EGPA webpage. The EGPA Policy Papers on European Governance aim to constitute a repertoire of reflections on the key issues affecting governance and administration in Europe. Responsibility for the papers lies ultimately with the paper authors.
