Fads, Fashions and Civil Service Reforms

The emergence of independent civil services did not come about until well into the 20th century. In the olden times, civil servants were no more than servants to the kings, queens, lords, dukes and Royals. They had no rights and could be dismissed at will.

Prior to mid-20th century, we could witness: favouritism, cronyism, intimidation, corruption, waste, scandals and rampant dismissals which were widespread. And, public offices were distorted into private fiefdoms as arrogance, condescension, conceit, greed, and opportunism prevailed over honour, openness and prudence.

Modern civil service systems were supposed to differ from the old bad days through changes brought in which included: entrance examinations, job tenure, career service, political neutrality which were proposed as moral guardian to democracy shielding employees from politically motivated employment actions.

Today, it is widely accepted that evidence regarding the many reforms is still very thin. Many unsolved methodological problems remain while measuring the outcomes of reforms. Little is known about the rigorous empirical verification of claimed results. It appears that replication of rhetoric; fashion and symbolism have more to do with the reasons for reform than the "grim dictates of the world economy or the functional necessity for increased efficiency. Looking back through time we discover what words and symbols motivated the politicians when applying reforms:

1. in the middle ages: faith, grace, God, nation
2. in the 18th centaury: reason, nature and rights
3. Today: globalisation, risks, efficiency, reform, change, flexibility, performance, decentralisation, transparency, citizen and consumer orientation and sustainability.

These words are in constant conflict with the classical civil service values: neutrality, stability, hierarchy, impartiality, fairness, integration and standardisation

Unfortunately, ever since the Kinnock reform it appears that a trend backwards towards that squalid era is settling over the EU civil service.

We have in our previous tracts gone over recent (at least since the year 2000) examples that have shown a trend backwards away from democracy; are taking place in the EU institutions.

Tensions between the European Parliament and Council over Schengen continue. This leads the EP to take its time with the draft Deform legislation. Staff is in no hurry to loose a quarter of its earned benefits.
