Global Administrative Order
The trend of shifting regulatory authorities from the domestic to the international level in many fields (finance, ecology and environmental protection, health, investments and banking, etc.) is not unknown to the government of Serbia. Serbia is a member or a participant in many different systems of international and transnational cooperation that have been established by states, international organizations, and multinational businesses and NGOs. However, the global administrative order is not a popular concept in Serbia. The general public perceives supranational organizations mostly through the European and Euro-Atlantic integration processes, as well as through activities of the United Nations and (more recently) the International Monetary Fund. The Government and governmental bodies are much more active in the fields of international cooperation, participation in all international organizations and bodies in which membership is accessible to Serbia. It can be said that there is no active concept of a unique global administrative order, and that international cooperation is mostly conducted on a partial, case-by-case basis. Recent developments indicate that this could change in the following years. Legislative and administrative measures taken by the Government during the financial crisis and the swine flu pandemic clearly show that there is a broad influence of international organizations and that Serbia is functioning bearing in mind its position at the regional and global level.
