This Policy Brief will focus on the “reason why” of the decentralising process: the first session of this Paper will analyse the general theory of decentralisation: starting from the European Treaties and exploring the Political, Economic and Social rationales of this theory. Following this introduction to decentralisation, the author will take into account the exceptional situation brought up by the COVID-19 pandemic to figure out whether the decentralised approach would fit also for a crisis scenario. To do so, empirical experiences from several European countries will be considered, investigating their latest policiesand the related results.In the third and last part the author, supported by relatable data and trustworthy studies, will draw up his conclusion on the feasibility of decentralising in a time of crisis.
