Fiscal Centralization in Central Europe

After the political changes in 1989-1990 Central- and Eastern-European countries went through significant political, judicial, economic and social changes. Although the political and economic transitions have been analized intensively, not too much attention has been devoted for a long time to some basic aspects of fiscal decentralization what can fundamentally determine the performance of economic and social institutions. Recently, the OECD and the World Bank conducted researches on fiscal decentralization and tried to initiate improving local governance.

Although reforms of fiscal regimes have been continuosly on the political agenda no significant change has taken place in the region in certain fundamental respects.
