Abstract

Centralism has a long tradition in South-East Europe which was re-enforced in the Communist era. The paper investigates in a comparative and systematic way the current efforts of former Communist SEE countries (plus Slovenia and Croatia) to decentralize their administrative structures, especially into their efforts to implement self-government with a wider range of powers and an adequate financial endowment at the medium territorial-administrative level between state and communes ; the level of regions (NUTS-2 to -4). Where results achieved to date are sub-optimal, the paper investigates the diverse reasons for this. - (IfL)
