The European Journal of Public Administration Research (EJPAR) is a scholarly platform dedicated to exploring and advancing critical topics within the European public administration from inter and multidisciplinary perspectives. EJPAR serves as a conduit for the dissemination of knowledge and research on key facets of European governance, policy, and decision-making processes, shedding light on the multifaceted landscape that shapes our dynamic continent.

At EJPAR, we place a special emphasis on a spectrum of pivotal subjects that define the European administrative arena. Our journal is a hub for in-depth analysis and discussion of European policies, which have a profound impact on the continent’s societies, economies, and environments. We delve into the intricate interplay between public and business policies, recognizing the crucial role of the private sector in Europe’s socio-economic fabric.

The government and decision-making processes in Europe are of paramount interest to us, as we explore the mechanisms that drive public policy formulation, implementation, and evaluation. We aim to unravel the complexities of governance structures, providing insights into the functioning of various European institutions and their collective impact.
Efficiency and efficacy are fundamental benchmarks for evaluating the performance of both public and private sectors. EJPAR is committed to assessing and comparing the effectiveness of these sectors, contributing to informed discussions about their respective roles and their influence on European societies.
