¿Municipalización sin descentralización? ¿Centralización de competencias departamentales? Reflexiones sobre el proceso político subnacional en Uruguay

Author/s: Altaïr Jesica Magri
This article analyzes the incipient process of municipalization in Uruguay stating that municipalise does not necessarily apply and realize a process of decentralization. It´s proposed that the country is processing a decentralized municipalization. The analysis also exposes the second decentralized subnational level, the Department, which has seen its space autonomy back in recent years from the development of laws that increase the powers and the control of the central government.
