Scenario > Re-structuring of Funds from Public Sector Office to Issues in Local and Regional Levels

This is a future scenario* to show how the charter can create a shift in how Multi-level governance (MLG) is applied in Europe. It has been developed during the “Engagement Interviews”,  (Brussels – 03-04/2012).

* The following story is a fiction imagined during the co-creation process and does not engage the public authorities or stakeholders eventually mentioned.


Andres Ionescu, Director for Regional Affairs (Romania)

An administrative reform has taken place with the effort to divert funding from the public sector administration to issues which are more relevant to local and regional levels such as schools, waste management, food, agriculture and hospitals. The MLG Charter is being used as a negotiation tool to create conversation and negotiation between different levels of government to ensure the funding is placed in the most efficient and effective areas that benefit each particular issue. The jobs that were lost from cutting of public sector jobs have been created in other areas such as: relating to the issues at hand on the ground, as well as for facilitator roles in MLG negotiation and facilitation as it is now perceived as a way to save money and create new political culture.
