Professor Kisilowski Speaks at the European Chamber of Commerce
“Regulatory Environment of the Market in Central Europe – Do We Need a Revolution?” With this question Maciej Kisilowski, CEU Business School’s Assistant Professor of Law and Public Management and Co-Director of the Initiative for Regulatory Innovation (IRI), challenged nearly a 100 entrepreneurs from Central Europe at a networking session organized by the European Chamber of Commerce (EuCham) in Budapest. Professor Kisilowski strongly encouraged the audience to become more assertive about demanding better quality of governance from the public sector. He pointed out that the three main Central European economies – Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic – are all continuously at the bottom of the pack of the OECD countries in the World Bank “Doing Business” rank. “Do you know the only two countries that are behind us?” Professor Kisilowski asked his audience. “Number 30 – Italy, Number 31 – Greece.”
Together with Bernadett Koles, CEU Business School’s Associate Professor of Psychology and Management and the other IRI Co-Director, Professor Kisilowski is currently at the final stages of preparation of a large empirical project comparing the management systems and practices of a sample of public and private organizations in Central Europe. During the EuCham session, Professor Kisilowski warmly invited the participating entrepreneurs to stay informed about IRI’s upcoming activities. “Especially in this part of the world, revolution in public management is possible,” he concluded.
