On 18 and 19 April 2013 the Regional School of Public Administration (ReSPA) organised its 7th Annual Conference in Danilovgrad/Montenegro. The conference was attended by delegates from the six member states of ReSPA (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia) and Kosovo* and representatives from the Directorate for Enlargement of the European Commission. In addition, participants came from other international organisations such as SIGMA-OECD and the World Bank, civil society organizations, academia and think-tanks from EU member states and the Western Balkans. The 7th Annual Conference focused on the theme of ‘Effective Policy Making: How to Ensure Desired Changes through Successful Implementation of Policies’. Conference contributions addressed the various stages of the socalled ‘policy cycle’, a heuristic instrument to divide the policy process into the stages of: (i) Agenda setting, (ii) Policy formulation, (iii) Policy implementation, (iv) Policy evaluation. The conference theme reflected persisting paradoxes of public policy and administration in the Western Balkans in relation to the main stages of the policy-making process.

 

The Government was represented by Roland Bejko, Advisor to the Minister of Interior and ASPA Director; Blerta Selenica DoPA Director, Oriana Arapi, Director of the Strategies Coordination Unit at DSDC, Fatmir Demneri Director of TIPA, MoI and DoPA staff.

 

Mrs. Oriana Arapi’s intervention “An integrated Approach - the Albanian National Strategy for Development and Integration” highlighted the main elements of the approach and process that is currently implemented by the Government of Albania for the draft of the NSDI 2013-2020.The National Strategy for Development and Integration (NSDI) 2013-2020 is the successor to the National Strategy for Development and Integration 2007-2013. The NSDI is conceived as a broad planning and monitoring framework that ensures coherence and harmonisation between policy priorities stemming from Medium-Term Budget Programming and European Integration for the period 2013-2020. The NSDI 2013-2020 is not a stand-alone process but it is embedded in a broader strategic planning framework: the Integrated Planning System (IPS), which is a set of principles, processes and outputs that constitute a broad planning and monitoring framework, aims to ensure coherent, effective and harmonised planning and monitoring of policies and public finance as a whole. NSDI 2013-2020 has been drafted within the period January 2012- May 2013. It will be consulted with various stakeholders and civil society during the period October - December 2013. Finalization of NSDI 2013-2020 is projected to take place in January 2014.
