IN SEARCH FOR AN OPTIMAL LEVEL OF DECENTRALIZATION IN ROMANIA Print E-mail

Cătălin Dumitrică 

Abstract 

Starting with year 1990 and until the present, the Romanian administrative system was subjected to continuous reform measures, which had as main objective to increase administrative efficiency and flexibility, recording a substantial increase of the autonomy and competences of the local public administration.

The important place that public administration occupies in our constitutional system derives from the consecration of the principle of separation and balance of powers, emphasizing both the defining traits of the state of law, and the type of democratic regime, the pluralism of the Romanian society and local autonomy.

PUTTING ETHICAL ISSUES OF TOURISM INDUSTRY IN SOCIO/ECONOMIC PERSPECTIVE, THE SLOVENIAN CASE OF GORIŠKA REGION Print E-mail

Tamara Besednjak Valič

Abstract

Solely economic view over the relation between costs and benefits of tourist industry nowadays no longer suffice. The author will made an attempt to put some of the most evident ethical issues with the emphasis on the size of the tourist facility in sociological perspective. In the paper we will aim towards enlightening the situation where claims state that more non-gambling related entertainment offer in casinos actually contribute towards more benefits than costs of gambling. Tentative conclusion show, that gambling related problems at younger generation of high school pupils do not seem to be directly connected with the size of gambling facilities and their offer in a region but they are based on other gambling games not conducted in casinos and gambling halls.

Key words Tourism, gambling, size of gambling facility, gambling problems.

How "free" is Slovenia in term s of IT "freedom"? These are the sort of questions we will try to tackle as we had already implemented some of the steps in introducing free libre open source software (FLOSS).
