Abstract: Public administration in the European continent is characterized by relatively significant changes implemented predominantly since the 1970s. They are represented predominantly by reforms based on the decentralisation, deconcentration, subsidiarity and global democratisation of public administration execution principles. The another their important aspect is the implementation of several management approaches time-tested in the private sector, mainly on the basis of the so called New Public Management (NPM). It is the conception having the decisive position in the European public administration mainly in the 1980s and the first half of the 1990s. This approach criticized nowadays is more and more replaced by the conception of “public governance“ or “good governance“ since the end of the last century.
