A high-ranking Romanian delegation visited the Faculty of Public


Governance and International Studies on 3rd November, which was of particular interest to the teaching and research activities of our faculty, in particular to certain current developments in administrative law, the legislative process of the General Administrative Procedure Act, the Code of Administrative Court Procedure and the experience of law enforcement.

The delegation was welcomed at the Faculty by Dean Gergely Deli. He emphasized the peculiarities of the university and the faculty which can be of  primary interest to all guests. One of these is the search for synergies between certain branches of public service education in the broadest sense. This is complemented by the university’s mission to strive for a harmonious balance between past traditions, current challenges and future opportunities, furthermore to have a good service that establishes good governance and reflects a student friendly attitude.

Péter Krisztián Zachar, Vice Dean for International Affairs presented the history and structure of the University and the Faculty, highlighted the main features of FPGIS and described the foreign language courses and their main topics.

Several departments delegated colleagues to the committee set up to receive Romanian colleagues, who reported on the educational activities, main research directions, talent development programs, international embeddedness together with tasks and experiences related to the current Hungarian public administration. This was amended with an illustration of the research areas and activities of the Doctoral School of Public Administration, which is also unique in international comparison. During the conversation a professional dialogue launched, in which the experts also discussed the differences in the administrative law of the two countries.

The delegation, which was led by the Ministry of Public Works, Development and Administration of Romania and included more than 20 representatives of the Romanian Ministry of Justice, local authorities and several universities was received during its stay in Budapest not only by the Hungarian Ministry of Justice, but also by the capital’s local government and several public institutions.
