Bu calismada, Iskocya’da 1999 yilinda gerceklestirilen yerinden yonetim reformu incelenmektedir. 1970’li yillarin ortalarindan itibaren, dunyadaki genel egilim dogrultusunda dile getirilen bolgesel ve etnik talepler, cesitli ulus devletlerin butunlugune meydan okumaya baslamistir. Iskocya ve Galler’de dile getirilen bu baglamdaki talepler, uniter devlet olan Birlesik Krallik tarafindan ilgili bolgelere, sinirli bir ozerklik taninmasi ile yanitlanmistir. Iskocya’ya taninan sinirli ozerklik, Birlesik Krallik’i federal bir sisteme donusturmese de uniter devletlerde alisik olmadigimiz bir yapi ortaya cikarmistir. Iskocya’nin yasama ve yurutme yetkileri acisindan merkezi devletle iliskileri ilginc ve incelenmeye deger bir ornektir.The notion of participation has been on the agendas again for supportive mechanisms of political and administrative pro-cesses after post 1980 period. Though many factors may be pointed among the possible causes, the growing lack of legitimacy takes the front. It seems arguable and functional that the elimination of legitimacy problem and reconstruction of trust towards politically elected ones (Secilmisler) and bureaucrati-cally assigned ones (Atanmislar) could be a function of civic engagement for public policy formulation and implementation processes regarding the provision of public services. Therefore, the notion of participation, which is also accused as an ideological repressing tool for the upcoming demands rising from population at large on personalized or organized bases, is at the heart of a universal pervasion process. This text asserts such an actual argument that the notion of participation could be transformed into some other functional forms of electronic means of citizen participation via websites for Turkish public administration system. By means of such an e-participation mechanism, administrative authorities in Turkey could find functional tools by which it is more possible to challenge the political and administrative legitimacy crisis fa-ced with. Through such a mean of e-participation formed over World Wide Web (WWW), population at large can also present their complaints, information, denouncements and proposals to those administrative authorities at local, national or supranational level. In return, administrative authorities can provide the public with better public services in such a way that some obstacles before the notion of participation would be eliminated as time and place.
