Abstract

The article pursues three research objectives. The first one refers to the presentation of theoretical arguments supporting units’ consolidation and the review of global ex post experiences in achieving the expected results of such reforms. The second goal consists in presenting the authors’ recommendations regarding the elimination of territorial division dysfunctions. The article draws attention to the fact that changing the rules of local authorities’ functioning can bring more effective results. Despite inexplicit results of empirical analyses, consolidation still remains the leading trend of local government reforms. It is determined by political considerations, since it is easier to carry out a consolidation reform rather than take up laborious efforts in order to create institutional changes within units.
