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. Three innovations are proposed by this material. First, it will provide an alternative theoretical lens to approach the relationship between the evolution of a State s agencies (decentralization) and functionality (State capacity). Second, the present material is the first approach to test the assumption of literature on decentralization and State capacity on a comparative sample containing most of the post- communist countries. Third, it tests the influence of decentralization on State capacity by taking into consideration both the static and dynamic nature of State capacity.
