                        The scope of the present approach is twofold. First, it will try to analyze whether the post- communist transitions were very different from other transitions from autocratic rule (see Schneider and Schmitter 2003 for a debate on the subject) by attempting to adjust a theoretical apparatus developed for other uses and to apply it irrespective of the degree of democratization. Second, as the vision on what decentralization means and how it works influences how important funds are distributed and how many programs of the international institutions are implemented, the findings may have an immense public policy stake. Especially under the influence of the main international institutions of the World Bank and the IMF, many developing countries are guided into adopting specific policies.
