DECENTRALIZATION OF SOCIAL SERVICES IN BULGARIA – EXPECTATIONS AND REALITY

Abstract: In the last decade Bulgaria was trying to develop the decentralization in the state government and thus to provide services which are more effective and closer to citizens. One of the aims of the two strategies for decentralization adopted in the period 2006 – 2015 was to ensure decentralised social services for citizens. Now, after more than 10 years, the analyse shows that there is no progress and no decentralization. Some of the reasons for this is the mistaken understanding of the delegation as a form of decentralization. This is way the first part of this article tries to explain the main theoretical aspects of decentralization and its distinction from the delegation. The second part is aimed at explaining the main errors in the last strategies for decentralization and thus the reasons for their failure.
