Administrative Capacity of Local Governments: Political Dimensions
Local self government units fulfill their existence with providing participation, autonomy and efficiency as three main principles of local democracy. They can achieve these principles only with adequate and sufficient administrative capacity. We acknowledge four groups of factors for building administrative capacity. These factors are on state and local level. In article and through research we present a conceptual model of factors for building administrative capacity. Four groups are political, economical, administrative-organizational and social factors that influence capacity. In article we put in focus political group of factors on local level. Article gives a lot of directions for further explorations and empirical testing.
