Workshop on Administrative Simplification -- Ankara, 8-9 May 2008


This workshop on the theme of administrative simplification was hosted in Ankara on 8-9 May 08. It was organised by the Turkish Prime Ministry in collaboration with Sigma. The main objective of this workshop was to contribute to the national debate on and provide inputs to the policy in Turkey on administrative simplification in the EU accession perspective. Emphasis was put on good practices which have lead to administrative simplification rather than on conceptual and theoretical matters.
The following are expert papers presented at the conference.
