Regional inequalities, decentralisation and the performance of local governments in post-communist Romania

Editorial: Local Government Studies, vol. 37, no. 6, p.647-669, 2011.


The economic growth that had occurred in post-communist Romania had polarized society and largely amplified existing inequalities. The aim of the paper is to investigate regional disparities and to underline the governmental mechanisms in balancing territorial inequalities, and to examine the possible effects of regional economic disparities on the performance of regional administration in delivering public services in the light shed by the new regionalisation debate. The conclusion is that counties’ institutional performance does not yet correlate with regional wealth, but regional disparities and subsequent mechanisms in balancing inequalities have to be taken into account by the public debate concerning further decentralisation.
