Further Information



Arab states have been actively reforming public management systems over the past five years. There are pockets of good practice that, if adopted by all countries in the region, would yield an enabling environment for economic growth and social development.


The 300-page report includes country case studies and datasets for nine countries from the region and covers nine topics of public management reform: human resource management, public finance, integrity, regulation and law drafting, administrative simplification, e-government, public-private partnerships, gender, and water resource management.

It is the first in a series of bi-annual reports that seeks to keep practitioners, legislators, academics, NGOs, members of the donor community and other interested parties informed about recent trends in the field of governance and public management throughout the MENA region.
