|dc.description||Throughout years, Estonian newspapers have written a lot about administrative and territorial
reform in Estonia and in these years many local governments have united. This Bachelor’s
thesis „The analysis of the discussion of uniting parishes based on the case of Kuusalu and
Loksa parishes’ uniting negotiation” studies, how change which concurs uniting of two
parishes is perceived by the village chiefs of those parishes.
This Bachelor’s thesis’ main objective is to explain, which aspects are most important to the
village chiefs in case of uniting parishes and how they share the arguments for and against
uniting that have been published in local written media.
The theoretical and empirical basis of this thesis focuses on administrative reform, theories of
organisational change and uniting negotiation of Kuusalu and Loksa parishes’.
The second part of this thesis brings forth the results of content analysis of newspaper texts
and the results of the analysis of in-depth interviews with the village chiefs of former Kuusalu
and Loksa parishes.
It became evident from the in-depth interviews with the village chiefs that even these village
chiefs who were in favour of the uniting would have preferred to keep their parish as it was.
Besides a few positive aspects of the uniting they also saw many negative aspects of it. The
positive aspects were conjoined mostly with the economical profits of uniting and with the
profits for their villages. They also brought out more concrete positive aspects – children now
go to their own parish’s school, villages get more attention from the local authorities etc. As
for the negative aspects the village chiefs brought out mostly cognitive aspects and the size
and distance of the parish, also the feeling of losing something. The village chiefs, who still
have negative attitudes about the uniting, also feel that they and their village are endangered.
It became evident that the village chiefs agree more with the arguments published in local
written media that are for uniting than the arguments against it. Mostly, the village chiefs
shared only those arguments against the uniting published in local written media that were
brought out by common parishioners.||
