Directive Role of the United Nations in Public Administration Development
Keywords:United Nations, development of public administration.
The article discusses forms of UN activity aimed to promote a cooperation in public administration by generalizing
experiences of different states and institutions in this field and participating in good practice dissemination.
The authors emphasize that the most important forms of such activity are: analytical reviews of public
sector in different countries and publications analyzing certain issues and problems of public administration;
global forums, dedicated conferences and expert meetings; spread of information through UNPAN website. By
making the analysis of materials of the United Nations’ „Seventh Global Forum on Reinventing Government:
Building Trust in Government“ held in Vienna in July 2007, it is shown that this information can serve to forecast
the future tendencies of public administration development.
