Dr. Terry Anderson, professor of Troy University and Andriy Palianytsia, World Bank expert, continued to lecture at Module 5 for participants of the program for Master of Public Administarion, on January 21-23 in Lviv.
During the first two days, Terry Anderson continued talking about effective work in public sector. She encouraged program participants to work in a transparent and inclusive way and suggested 5 principles of the Code of Ethics for a Public Manager: to abide with the law, to serve public interests, to do no harm, to take on responsibility, to enhance things you are not competent in.
‘Have no fear of lack of regulation, it’s not a problem!’ Andriy Palianytsia assures. ‘The need or no need for regulation shall be stipulated by its implementation costs. If such regulation is expensive and yields no public good it has no right for existence.’ On the last day of the study module, he discussed issues of deregulation and liberalization of economy and supported his words with case studies.
Andriy Palianytsia is a World Bank expert for governments and international organizations on regulatory policy, public governance, and corruption combating. He has experience working in 24 countries of Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Also, during the module program participants had an opportunity to meet Tymofiy Aleksandronets, head of Department for Information Technologies of Lviv City Council. They had an interesting conversation that led to a suggestion to directly coordinate and implement innovation based projects currently underway in the city.
The first module in the new year on the MPA UCU program started in an environment of right conversations, hot debates, and fruitful results!
