EFFICIENT BUDGET EXPENDITURE AS A MIRROR OF EFFICIENT PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION
Open Dialogue

What is public administration today? How does the budgetary system operate?

At the federal level alone there are 53 ministries and agencies (16 ministries, 19 services, 18 agencies), 373,600 people who administer more than 66% of the federal budget expenditure and at the same time generate a growing budgetary network. a multi-step public administration system gives rise to challenges within the system, reduces the control over the use of budgetary resources, and blurs responsibility for functions entrusted.

Issues for Discussion:

  • What should be changed for the public administration system to operate efficiently? 
  • Should the activities of a public servant be assessed? Should the system of his/her financial incentives be changed?
  • How to reduce violations and ineffective expenses when using public resources?
  • How to improve the quality of exercise of powers delegated to regions and municipalities? Should they become own powers of regions with income sources redistribution or exchange for other expenditure powers?

BORDERLINES IN THE WORLD ECONOMY
Panel Discussion

The uneven distribution of the benefits from globalization and its economic, financial, social, cultural and other consequences are too daunting. Even in developed countries, the majority of the population has not received significant benefits from economic globalization. As a result, the issue of free trade and economic integration has turned into a political agenda for many leaders of large states.

The realities of the new industrial revolution increase bids for those who lost out in the global competition. Sanctions have become a daily reality, serving not only political, but also technological interests. The world economy is fragmented, and not only along the traditional North-South and East-West lines. Individual countries fudge on the agenda that they have been promoting for decades.

Issues for Discussion:

  • The world trade growth after the crisis has not yet returned to the previous figures. What does this mean for the development of the world economy? What will the future globalization be like?
  • What will the new trends in integration agreements be? Scope of participants or depth of penetration into the national competence? Are developing countries interested in catching up with the globalization agenda?
  • What are the benefits of globalization in the 21st century for traditional industries, will globalization contribute to the transfer of production and technology transfer?
  • What will the integration agenda be in Russia in the post-Soviet space, with the European and Asian partners; does Russia have a sufficient stake to reach wider and deeper integration agreements?
  • Sanctions are based on political motives, but gradually they are starting to look more and more like measures to protect domestic manufacturers. Is it temporary or will it become the new reality for a long time?

THE OCTOBER REVOLUTION OF 1917: 100 YEARS LATER
Expert Discussion

This panel focuses on the October Revolution and early Soviet era. It reassesses after fifty years the first “revisionist” and standard interpretations and looks at the Bolshevik Revolution in world perspective. Western post-war analysis of the October revolution and place the revolution in a global and geopolitical perspective. Early Western post-war analysis of the October Revolution and the early Bolshevik regime differed from mid-Soviet-era Russian interpretations, which viewed the outcomes as a mass movement led and carefully planned and executed by the Bolsheviks. Western historians still affirmed Bolshevik leadership, indeed, manipulation of events. From the late 1960s and 1970s, revisionists emphasized the social, or bottom-up, trends in the October revolution and continued to focus on the two “polarizations”--of state and society and of social classes. Finally, the panel also draws on the history of the larger Revolution, including February, global comparisons of the impact of geopolitics on revolution.

Issues for Discussion:

  • How do revolutions end? Is this a problem for historians as well as revolutionaries?
  • What made the October Revolution work?
  • As in the 1930s, global leadership in the economy seems to be shifting toward China and away from older, weaker democratic states, Will the world in the 2030s look increasingly like it did a century earlier?

HUMAN CAPITAL ASSETS ON CIVIL AND MUNICIPAL SERVICES: VALUES AND DEVELOPMENT
Expert Discussion

The external environment is changing. Technologies are changing the work format and demanding the acquisition of new skills. The economy is also going global, becoming more competitive and dynamic. Technological changes, changes in the working environment, forming according to new principles of labor markets, changing career patterns (jobs for life) – all these changes affect public administration. Public administration systems are changing, i.e. rapidly adapting to the global changes. The major trend for changes is that public administration must become a place of concentration of the most capable people who want to contribute to the development of a country.

Human capital management system development in public administration clearly shows that continuous transformation is a prerequisite for its effective functioning. However, such transformations may not occur unilaterally or in a revolutionary manner, and should meet the values of the state.

Issues for Discussion:


  • Public administration development: revolution vs evolution

RATING RESULTS OF INNOVATIVE REGIONS OF RUSSIA
Presentation of Rating Results

The rating of innovative regions of Russia for the purposes of monitoring and management has been developed by the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia in 2012 in cooperation with the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.

Since 2016, the rating includes 29 indicators. Important differences from the ratings of previous years are 6 qualitatively new indicators combined into a single semantic unit Innovation Activity in the Region. Herewith, indicators of the three basic units of the rating remain unchanged in order to monitor long-term dynamics in key development areas.

To make it unbiased and well-founded, the rating is not based on expert assessments, but on quantitative indicators. The rating makes it possible to identify leaders in each component and show strengths and weaknesses in the development of each region.

The system of indicators gives an idea of where it is profitable to do business and what regions have succeeded in it. As key conditions for the development of high-tech businesses take into account capital and labor resources, the institutional environment, infrastructural security and scientific potential of regions. The contribution of technological entrepreneurship in GRP, creation of jobs and budget formation was assessed. a comparison with average regional values makes it possible to identify strengths and weaknesses in the development of each region.

The report makes it possible to monitor the annual dynamics of high-tech economical sector development in regions, which is important for informed political decisions.

In the presentation of the national report, the major outcomes of the research will be presented with explanations and comments, alternatives for the application of outcomes of the report for the purposes of planning and regional development will be assessed, and future areas of development of the monitoring system will be announced.
