Donors, Technical Assistance and Public Administration in Kosovo

The chapter documents the development of the Kosovo civil service under UN administration. It discusses ideas about the role of civil service bureaucracy in economic development and describes the processes of recruiting Kosovar civil servants, their salary arrangements, and their terms and conditions of employment. Assessments of the current day performance of the public administration in Kosovo are largely negative and the chapter argues that this can be traced to initial failure by the UN to take steps to control civil service recruitment and establish merit based employment.
