Decentralization of Services for Children: the Spanish Experience
The â€˜Plan Of Actionâ€™ adopted at the 1990 World Summit for Children recognised the importance of grass-roots initiatives for children at the provincial level. In many countries, this call for â€˜decentralisationâ€™ has triggered the beginnings of an entirely novel process. In Spain, a general trend toward the provincial and the participatory had already begun - the effect of the NPA has been to strengthen an already existent phenomenon. This paper documents Spainâ€™s extensive experience of decentralisation and the influence it has had upon policy and services for children.
