SIGMA and the Regional School of Public Administration (ReSPA), have initiated the Public Administration Awards to enhance governance initiatives and support the establishment of strong public governance systems in the Western Balkan region. The purpose of the 2020 ReSPA and SIGMA Public Administration Awards is to identify, promote, learn from and recognise inspiring practices, initiatives, services, and measures by governments within the Western Balkans.

The 2020 Awards will focus on successful responses by the Western Balkan administrations to address the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. This has forced governments to be inventive and responsive in order to deal effectively with issues concerning both public health and the economy. Encouraging a diversity of approaches and perspectives, the Awards will focus on initiatives that ensure continuity in the delivery of public services, resilience and responsiveness of public administrations in ensuring a co-ordinated response and ensuring the continued functioning of public institutions during a crisis. The Public Administration Awards aim to identify these efforts so that they may be a source of inspiration throughout the region.
