dc.description.abstractThis discussion paper looks at the Bolivian decentralization model. The objective ofBolivian decentralization is to consolidate the process of popular participation, and topromote regional economic development by means of a more equitable distribution ofnational income and improved administration of public resources. The legal frameworkof Bolivian decentralization is established by two principled laws; firstly, the LPP, definesdecentralization on the municipal level and represents a new dimension of governmentalreform, creating an important link between the state and civil society. Second,the Law of Administrative decentralization (LAD-adm) organizes the structure ofthe executive power in each Department so as to underpin administrative decentralization.Overall the decentralization process in Bolivia can be seen as an important steptowards restructuring the old centralized state into a more democratic one. However, asthe social uprising and protests which took place in October 2003 show, the decentralizationlaws alone didn?t solve the economic and social problems in Bolivia.en_US
