New Wine in Old Wineskins: General Administrative Procedure and Public Administration Reform in Croatia
Keywords: general administrative procedure, Croatia, modernization of public administration, administrative law, institutional theory, historical institutionalism
AbstractIn 2009, Croatia adopted the new General Administrative Procedure Act
(GAPA), which introduced several novelties in the regulation of general
administrative procedure. The main research topic deals with the changes that the new GAPA, as an incentive for public administration reform in Croatia, has produced. The empirical data were collected within the EU funded IPA project “Support for the implementation of the General Administrative Procedure Act” (2012−2013) and interpreted on the basis of institutional theory. Despite changes to the legal text, the empirical data show that the new GAPA has not resulted in actual changes in everyday public administration.
