A Study Case Report about Decentralization

The focus group of KIE held face-to-face interviews with fifteen Mayors, the two supervisors of the two independent administrative units of both Raparin and Garmyan, the deputy governor of Halabja, fourteen governorate director generals from Sulaimany governorate and three director generals from the Halabja governorate, thirteen members of Sulaimany’s governorate council, and two university professors. Each were asked questions corresponding to the nature of their position. The reports strategy required from the supervisor team of the survey to design, based on the proximity the jobs and positions, two different yet complementary bundles of questions: The first bundle of questions was directed at members of the governorate council and university professors since the nature of this first bundle of questions aimed at finding the comparative differences between the legal texts and the prevalent reality. In other words, these questions investigate the laws and legal framework that relates decentralization in the Kurdistan Region. The second bundle of questions was directed at Mayors, director generals, the supervisors of independent administrative units and governors. This bundle necessitates answers that are based of practical, daily and field knowledge. Moreover, these answers scrutinize the impact of the decrees from the Kurdistan Region’s central government on the application of administrative and fiscal decentralization within the institutes and offices of the administrative units.
