Abstract

After 7 February 2007, the date on which in the United States was the beginning of the mega-global economic crisis, the financial world is vastly different and its reshaping is likely to persist for years or even decades. The consequences of the economic crisis extended beyond the economy itself. It affected the entire World, with a considerable impact on the EU Member States. The economies of the countries have been altered dramatically, and their patterns of governance have changed. One of these components of the models of governance is the public administration system. The paper can be included in the interdisciplinary field of administrative sciences, where the study of the economy plays an important role. The aim of the study is to analyze the impact of the crisis on the public administrations from Southeastern Europe, and the role of the anti-crisis measures taken at the level of the governance process of public administration. Therfore, the research attempts to provide an answer to a number of central research questions: 1. How the economic crises affected the emerging administrations from Southeastern Europe? 2. What were the anti-crisis measures taken at the level of public administration?

The study is mainly qualitative based, and tries to identify in which consisted the impact of the economic crisis. It will be focused on the Southeastern European region, a region with some economic and democratic particularities due to the historical legacies of the totalitarian regimes it had. In particular, the paper focus on a case study- Romania public administration- a country from the Southeastern Europe. The paper develops on the premises that Romania public administration system was altered directly by the crises and the measures undertaken to reduce its impact. The research raises the awareness for academics and practitioners to the hardships that transition countries and emerging administrations from Southeastern Europe had to face in keeping the governmental system functionally. On these grounds, specialists can quickly realize how important it is to adapt administrative values and to rethink the reforms to rapidly changing environment.
