  Abstract:  

The administrative organization of the Romanian state represented one of the most widely-debated issues in the early years of the interwar period. The administrative organization of the new state was very important for two basic reasons: it had to ensure the unitary national character of the state and, at the same time, it had a decisive influence on the balance between the social and political forces in the new state. This study does not take a juridical approach. It attempts to analyze the theme from a historical perspective, by focusing on the fundamental causes that determined the adoption of the centralized administrative system in the context of the historic phase the Romanian state had been going through: the process of building the nation-state. According to the thesis defended in this study, this element is one of the essential causes of the centralist option.

Keywords: administrative reform, centralisation, decentralisation, unitary state, nation-state building
