Decentralisation paradoxes: social welfare centralisation?

Decentralisation, particularly, territorial hromadas and rayons consolidation, is considered to be one of the most successful reforms in modern Ukraine. But it is obvious that at such a pace of changes, there will be serious challenges and drawbacks, as well as unexpected outcomes of decentralisation.

An example of such flaws is a social welfare sphere, including administrative services provision (public relief, subsidies, etc.). The paradox is that following October, 2020, the largest territorial hromadas, particularly those founded on the basis of cities of oblast significance, can lose their powers in the sphere of the population social welfare. Thus, after the decentralization capable local self-government bodies will enjoy less powers! Why is it so? You can find the answer in the material by the U-LEAD with Europe expert.
