The analysis of the Syrian public administration shows a high level of centralization, a direct influence of the President on all the government bodies and all levels of administration. The communications of public authorities reveal a rigid hierarchy of control in Syria. Moreover, the tremendous centralization that had led to social tension and conflicts strengthened because of the complex geopolitical situation, military conflicts and economic collapse.

The article attempts to prove the statement that in the current social, military, political and economic conditions it is impossible to avoid the vertical centralized management hierarchy in Syria. However, the quality of management and its effectiveness still can be improved. It is necessary to implement a system of public servant responsibility based on the formation of complex tools for evaluating the work of each government employee, the performance of each program or project implemented at the state level and the development of professional standards for those positions of public administration which are associated with high corruption risks.


Public administration, government effectiveness, state programs, professional standards, a system of accountability, corruption risks.
