|This paper compares the systems of public employment in Germany, France, Great Britain and Sweden and analyses to which extent qualitative changes concerning the employment regulation and personnel systems in these countries occurred since the beginning of the 1980s. Starting from similar civil servant systems the countries headed in different directions. While a far reaching shift towards employment characteristics of the private sector has taken place in Great Britain and Sweden, the systems of public employment in Germany and France are still very distinct and exhibit most features of the traditional civil service system.
