This book is the outcome of in-depth academic research on the civil service carried out by acknowledged international and national experts in the field. It brings together papers and speeches presented at the international symposium "The civil service in Poland: 20 years of experience and the outlook for change", which was organized at the University of Warsaw. The authors summarise the studies on the transformations in the civil service systems in European and other countries, especially those pertaining to Anglo-Saxon culture. They also aim to provoke deeper reflections on the process of establishing the civil service in Poland, especially against the background of the legislative changes introduced in late 2015 and early 2016.
