Mehmet Göküş

Abstract


From the first years of Turkish Republic on, there has been a tendency for making reform in order to overcome the problems came along in the administrative structure. One of the most important issues of these efforts has been the problems experienced in public service delivery and the solutions to these problems. These studies started to increase especially after the Second World War. The reason for this is the emergence of an intense increase in the tasks that the state assumes according to the patterns of new social and political relations after the war.

After the Second World War, some studies have been done by foreign experts to solve problems in public administration in our country.  However, although these studies have had a certain impact on the improvement of administration, they have not been able to provide solutions to problems encountered during the execution of public services.

Seeking solutions to the problems that have arisen in public service has continued in the planned period after 1960. These reform efforts have in general gained continuity in order to ensure that the public administration system has a structure and function to fulfil its functions. The studies carried out in this period have focused especially on the problems of the public service and solutions for these. Some of the reform trials can be listed as follows: Central Government Organization Research Project, Advisory Board Report on Administrative Reform, Public Administration Research Project.

With this study, the studies about the public service to render them more qualified, more regular and effective in the process of administrative reform in Republican period will be tried to reveal and analyze.
