Subnational Budget Monitoring in Macedonia: Case Studies of Municipalities of Štip and Gostivar
In: Making Public Finance Public: Subnational Budget Watch in Croatia, Macedonia, and Ukraine
This paper tackles the question of subnational budgetary monitoring in Macedonia. It offers a general analysis of the decentralization reforms in the country with a particular attention to the possibilities for the public oversight of budgets on the local government level. The paper argues that the legal order does not prescribe the process and that there are also no clear possibilities within the law for budgetary oversight by concerned citizens and nongovernmental organizations. Moreover, as the examples from the two municipalities of Štip and Gostivar show, budgetary monitoring on the subnational level is very difficult to undertake in practice. To change the present circumstances the author recommends a number of policy measures aimed at strengthening the role of the civil sector in the budgetary oversight of local governments.
