The Interior Ministry wants to launch an experiment with Frieslan and Zeeland. This will be a novelty in the history of management.
Annelos Croscomp, director of the ministry’s administration, finance and regional regions, said Thursday while presenting an article on administrative renewal in Leverton.
The Netherlands has joint terms. This has created a fairly unrestricted management layer. Frieslan and Zeland are the best in terms of size and nature to deal with this; Additional tasks here may be transferred to the provincial government. This also applies to ‘hack’ subjects such as housing, energy and charcoal lawns.
Science article: ‘This is how it can be done’
Caspar van den Berg (Campus Frieslan), a professor at Roosevelt University College in Middleburg, and Dr. Hermann Llewellyn wrote a scientific paper entitled ‘How It Is Possible’. They said they wanted to throw a stone in the pool.
Supervising Directors Arno Brock and Hon Bolman von Geland both received the manual. They were reluctant to implement it. Fred Weinstra, chairman of the Frisian municipality, warned that discussions about structural renovations would often end in gravel pit.
‘Going one step further is obvious’
So it was a great surprise to everyone that the Director of the Ministry who was present through the internet connection immediately accepted the project. Croscomp said the idea fits in with current plans for administrative reform. “It makes sense to go one step further.”
Crosscomp spoke about the “administrative arrangement” for freelancing and zealand. Interior affairs take the lead. Here the ministry is going to find out what it means if more things are organized provincially.
Culture in the practice of good governance
Scientists Van den Berg and Llewellyn talk about ‘circumferential liberation’ in their article. They looked at Italy, where important powers were transferred to the new regional administration in the late 1970s. It worked well in northern regions such as Lombardy or Emilia-Romagna, less so in southern regions.
Success has nothing to do with wealth, but has to do with the culture of good governance in practice: rules, good networks and social trust. Van den Berg and Llewellyn find parallels with Frieslin and Zeeland, where the administrative lines are narrow and the community is close.
Scientists want to “liberate both provinces from the illusions of administrative arrangements and give them the same leadership role that the Italian regions enjoyed in the late 1970s.” That’s not surprising, they say. In Spain (Catalonia, the Basque Country) there are differences in autonomy between the regions, as in the United Kingdom (Scotland, Wales).
The new system weaves simultaneously with “Hawk’s instrumental thinking in relation to the environment”. In simple words: The circumference in The Hague is a little different now. It feeds dissatisfaction and creates inequality. More and more people in the region can oppose this.
