GENERAL OBJECTIVE

Acquire a global perspective on the strategic importance of governance from the perspective of social security and institutions and organisation, as well as proposing conceptual and theoretical elements and tools that allow for the transformation of executives and collaborators in the exercise of new social security governance practices.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

  • Provide participants with a substantive and clear vision on the topic of public governance and in particular public sector governance as a whole, and specific public administrative entities.
  • Inform about the main issues of corporate governance in their executive activities, recent trends in terms of reforms, and some successful experiences in different countries.

BACKGROUND

The administrative reforms thus far, have been made with a mind to tighten public finances, in order to overcome constant fiscal crises in which welfare states constantly collapsed, reason for which they were aimed at resizing administration, reorganising public administrative systems, streamlining processes and introducing managerial methods and approaches to professionalize public employment, digitize its activities and registries. In this context, social security gains greater importance given the contributions it can make to reducing social needs.

The reforms that have been carried out, despite their lack of coordination, have improved the organization and performance of the public sector, in comparison with past behaviours and outcomes. However, it is striking that the two reform trends did not explicitly raise the issue of how the government directs public sector entities, i.e. the issue of government or governance of the public sector as a whole and of specific public organisations. Given the importance of the issues concerned, social security is becoming more and more strategically important.

JUSTIFICATION

One of the main keys to an effective social security system is good governance, which involves strategic topics and administrational and organisation aspects. So, governance constitutes a framework for the creation and development and monitoring of solid and viable social security programmes.

TOPICS

  • Key elements of governance and modern trends
  • The concepts, essential principles and interest groups of the corporate government.
  • Governance of Social Security administrative entities: governance, transparency and accountability
  • Create and maintain a culture of excellence in service.

EDUCATIONAL MODEL

The course will be developed based on the giving lectures by one or several speakers and with the implementation of the dynamics in teams that allow to develop a series of diagnoses on particular
topics with the contributions of the participants.
