No 393, Apas Papers from Academic Public Administration Studies Archive - APAS
Administrative convergence implies, among other, laws, institutions and national policies adjustment to the provisions of the Treaty of Lisbon. It requires coordination of social, economic, monetary and how to finance the European Union. By the Treaty are implements economic and social model which are based on values such as equality, social development, sustainable development, environmental protection. Also, the Treaty establishes explicit obligations of States on the coordination of economic policies. One of the factors leading to administrative convergence is the legal basis established by the Treaty of Lisbon, in order to improve administrative cooperation between Member States of the Union Treaty, facilitating the exchange of information and of civil servants as well as training Supporting Schemes. The Lisbon Treaty explicitly states that the Commission encourage cooperation between the Member States and facilitates the coordination of their action in all social policy fields. The Commission shall act in close contact with Member States by making studies, arranging delivering opinions and consultations. We identify several factors that determine the administrative convergence: the tools that implement EU policies adopted by the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, amended by the Treaty of Lisbon; the principles statues by Treaty on European Union and the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, amended by the Treaty of Lisbon; the national law changes; the influence of the administrative procedure.
