Round table on 'The reform of the administration, comparative practices'

The Parliament of Morocco, Rabat.

In the framework of the project "Support to the development of the role of the Parliament in consolidating democracy in Morocco 2020-2023", the Chamber of Representatives of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) organise the round table "The reform of the administration, comparative practices: views of legislators and experts" on March 23, 2022 at the headquarters of the Chamber of Representatives.

The event will be attended by the President and members of the Thematic Working Group in charge of the evaluation of the National Plan for the Reform of the Administration 2018-2021, the President of the Delegation of the Parliament of the Kingdom of Morocco to PACE, the Head of the Cooperation Section of the European Union in Morocco and the Head of the Council of Europe Office in Morocco.

Academics and experts from Morocco and several European countries will make presentations on comparative practices during this roundtable that will allow members of the thematic working group and officials of the Chamber of Representatives to exchange with their counterparts, European parliamentarians, PACE members and international experts from Germany, France, Italy and the United Kingdom on good practices in public administration reform and in particular on the issues of deconcentration, digital transformation and the ethics dimension in public administration. Participants will discuss the major challenges of public administration reform as well as the methodological aspects of the evaluation of public policy in this area.

This roundtable is part of the joint programme " Support to the development of the role of the Parliament in consolidating democracy in Morocco 2020-2023" funded by the European Union and implemented by the Council of Europe. The programme is structured around three main axes which consist in enhancing the practices of the Moroccan Parliament to effectively conduct the evaluation of public policies, to accompany the opening of the Parliament to citizens, civil society and other partners in order to effectively promote and support participatory democracy in Morocco, as well as to strengthen the inter-parliamentary dialogue between the Moroccan Parliament and its counterparts in neighbouring countries and Member States of the Council of Europe.

This project is implemented in accordance with the priorities of cooperation and the specific needs of Morocco, defined jointly by the Council of Europe and the Moroccan authorities under the Neighborhood Partnership with Morocco 2018-2021 (Partenariat de Voisinage avec le Maroc 2018-2021).
