EXPLORING CHANGE IN ROMANIA: TO BE OR NOT TO BE ‘JOINED-UP GOVERNMENT’? Print E-mail

Diana – Camelia Iancu 

Abstract
Addressing the case of Romania, a country with recent New Public Management history and ongoing decentralization reform, otherwise excluded from the target countries of joined-up government relevant literature, this paper aims at identifying institutional evidence of vertical and horizontal coordination (Pollitt 2003: 37). To this end, the article has two parts: 1) the conceptual explorative part, and 2) the analysis part, which uses the empirical data gathered from strategic documents of the Romanian decentralization reform and interviews with high representatives of the Romanian local and central governments involved in the reform process, in order to identify a possible indicator for “joining-up” practices (Pollitt 2003:44).
 
Keywords: joined-up government, decentralisation, coordination, governance
