Emerging Administrations under European Union Rules

Bogdan Berceanu



The idea of emergence is generally used to indicate the appearance of patterns, structures, or properties that cannot be adequately explained by referring only to the system’s pre-existing components and their interactions. The term “emergence” has an interdisciplinary approach specific to administrative sciences, too. In this article, the concept of “emergence” signifies lato sensu a kind of change and it will be used to refer to countries that have a high volatility and that are in transition and to define the changes that suffer the public administrations of the countries which are part of the European construction. European Union through its policies and legislation has a great impact on economic and social conditions in Member States. The aim of the paper is to present a theoretical approach on the dimension of emerging administrations understood as changes and reforms that suffer the institutions from the EU member states under the pressure of the European Union rules. The study is using the concept of emergence to research and to analyze the nature of the changes in the public administration starting from the approach of the systems theory.
