NAF2018, 100th Anniversary Conference, 5-7 September 2018

Introductory Remarks

Governmental power is meant to serve the people. The administration of the State must always be developed in a manner that seeks to enhance the welfare of the populace, maximise the considered use of limited resources and promote the rule of law and human rights. The Nordic Administrative Association has for almost 100 years been the venue for important and often pioneering debates on these issues in the Nordic countries. Indeed, the current pressures facing Nordic and European countries, finding their expression in increased austerity, issues of mass migration and the fragmentation of the project of European integration, impacts every administrative organ in its day-to-day operation. It is thus of importance that the Nordic Administrative Association continue its important work in bringing together expertise to improve the dissemination of knowledge for the betterment of the Nordic administrative state as well as providing examples of best practices for Europe and the wider world.

In September 2018, the country delegations of the Member States of the NAF will convene in Reykjavik for the Association´s 100th Anniversary Conference to discuss topical issues for the future of the Nordic administrative state, including its role in the securing of human rights, the interrelationship between the workings of cabinets and the administration, as well as between parliaments and the administration. The Conference will I am sure prove extremely useful and productive for all participants as they come together to share information, expertise and know-how.

I wish all those that decide to travel to Reykjavik to take part in the Conference a wonderful and memorable stay in Iceland.

Professor Robert Spano
