World Public Sector Report 2010 - Reconstructing Public Administration after Conflict

World Public Sector Report 2010 - Reconstructing Public Administration after Conflict

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3,476|Likes:
The 2010 World Public Sector Report brings to the fore a very critical issue - how to reconstruct public administration in post-conflict situations so as to enable it to promote peace and development in countries that have been affected by civil war and destruction. It is a question that has remained unresolved for decades and has brought poverty, despair, and death to people in many corners of the world.

The Report shows that no progress can be made in promoting peace, development and protection of human rights unless appropriate governance and public administration institutions are established, leadership and human resources capacities are re-built, citizens are engaged in the process of reconstruction through decentralized participatory mechanisms and basic public services are delivered. In fact, unless newly established governments are able to provide essential public services to the population, including safety, security, health, education, shelter, access to water and sanitation and job opportunities, there will be no durable peace.The report also emphasizes that because post-conflict situations are heterogeneous, there are no “one size fits all” solutions to governance challenges. In each country, public administration reforms should be tailored to local needs.

Finally, the report highlights that contrary to commonly held belief, post-conflict situations not only present challenges, but also offer numerous opportunities to leapfrog stages of development by adopting innovative practices in public administration, particularly through the application of ICTs in government and service delivery.

Countries emerging rom conict situations are almost always plagued by socialupheaval, damaged inrastructure, reduced productive capacity, severe revenueshortalls, seriously weakened human resources and greatly diminished security.Te challenges are daunting as post-conict governments strive to ensure peaceand security, oster social reconciliation and promote development. Yet recoveryis possible i the public administration can earn the trust o the people, efectively provide services to all and operate in an ecient, efective, transparent andaccountable way. In act, whereas the root causes o intrastate conict are usuallyassumed to be poverty and economic inequality or clashes among diferentethnic or religious groups, the central cause o violent conict is inefectiveleadership, weak governance institutions, inappropriate human resources, lacko mechanisms to engage citizens in public policy-making decisions and lack o or inefective delivery o public services.Te report emphasizes that because post-conict situations are heterogeneous,there are no “one size ts all” solutions to governance challenges. In each country, public administration reorms should be tailored to local needs. Te report alsohighlights that contrary to commonly held belie, post-conict situations notonly present challenges, but also ofer numerous opportunities to leaprog stageso development by adopting innovative practices in public administration, particularly the application o ICs in government and service delivery in theinormation age we all live in.
