The last twenty years have brought about rather tumultuous changes in terms of the way PAR is being defined, conducted, imitated and, why not, simulated. This paper aims to explore the way scientific literature has addressed the issue of reform in public administration through conducting a meta-literature review. The starting point of the enquiry is the geographical area of CEE. The second goal of the paper is to detect whether and to what extent the pattern of reforms registered in the CEE represents a blueprint for the countries included in the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) and in Central Asia.
