Abstracts
Decentralisation has been recognised as one of the key
priorities of the 2014 Serbian Public Administration Reform
Strategy. To that end, the Serbian Government has
taken steps towards preparing a national decentralisation
strategy. Serbia has a single-level and almost completely
monotype structure of local government, in which towns
have the same organisation of bodies, and almost identical
competences as municipalities do, including some minimal
exceptions for the Town of Belgrade, as the country’s capital.
In the light of the ongoing discussions on decentralisation in general and, more specifically, on the reform of the
local government system, the authors comment on some
of the issues in the centre of that discussion, particularly
those relating to the status of towns in general and the status
of the capital, and provide proposals for possible overall
reforms of the local government system. Consequently,
these issues will be analysed from the perspective of the
need to alter the current constitutional framework.
