Die verwaltungspolitischen Implikationen des Europäischen Semesters

  • The European Semester is an instrument for coordinating and monitoring the economic and fiscal policies of the EU member states. However, since the European Commission explicitly emphasizes the importance of the countries’ public administration for economic growth, it seems reasonable to assume that the member states’ bureaucracy will also be addressed within the framework of the European Semester. This article therefore examines the admi-nistrative policy ideas and reform proposals of the European Commission by analysing the annual country-specific recommendations addressed to all EU member states between 2011 and 2019 under the European Semester. Applying quantitative text analysis to all CSRs during the investigation period shows that the European Semester is used to a considerable extent to propose administrative reforms to the Member States. Out of the 466 reform proposals identified, more than half were related to either the management of public finances or the administrative structure in the member states. On the average (without Greece), each country received 17,3 reform proposals with administrative policy implications over the entire period. However, the differences between the EU member states are significant, as can be seen from the distribution of the reform proposals.
