aboutABOUT
     
 

The European Association for Public Administration Accreditation (EAPAA) was founded in 1999 to develop and maintain a system for the voluntary accreditation of academic public administration programmes in Europe. The international recognition by peers is an important assurance for the quality of a degree programme.

The European Group for Public Administration (EGPA) and the Network of Institutes and Schools of Public Administration in Central and Eastern Europe (NISPAcee) are the two official members of EAPAA.

EAPAA is an autonomous organisation, but collaborates closely with other organisations in the field of Public Administration, like EGPA, NISPAcee, ICAPAIIAS, IASIA and NASPAA.

EAPAA is member of INQAAHE and EASPA.
