The rational territorial organization of public power has a special importance of building a democratic state in the Republic of Moldova. The efficient functioning of the system of public power in a unitary state like Moldova largely depends on its territorial organization and the interaction established between the local and state power.

Although Moldova has gone through several stages of reforming the territorial organization of public power, the experience obtained implementing the administrative-territorial reform in 1998 and the Counter Reformation in 2003 has not been sufficiently analyzed and systematized on a theoretical level.

The theoretical conceptualization of the notion “territorial organization of public power” provides an efficient mechanism of analyzing for theorists, and also a practical tool for practitioners.
