Improving the performance of the core civil service is one of the most important tasks facing government, but is also notoriously challenging. Based on studying 30 years of reforms across 6 countries in Africa, this book shows that these reforms have largely failed to achieve their goals because they have approached organizational change mainly as a matter of changing formal structures and processes through one-off projects. The book proposes a new approach in which reform is viewed not as a short period of rewriting rules but as catalyzing an ongoing process of continuous organizational change, and discusses strategies for reformers to achieve this in practice.
The workshop includes a presentation and practical session. The practical session will take place after the presentation. Registration is valid for both events.
The workshop is part of the EUI Anti-Corruption MWP Multidisciplinary Research Workshop aims at discussing cutting edge research on the topics of corruption measurement, prevention, displacement, and reduction. The workshop is organized by Dr. Michele Castiglioni.
The Zoom link will be shared after registration. The deadline for registration is 28 October at 14.00 CEST.
