How could I translate el ciclo de centralización política ? political centralization cycle is too choppy, and I´m sure that I´ve not heard it before. Here is the context: The third section is dedicated to evaluate how the fiscal decentralization has closed the political centralization cycle by means of consolidating a federative pact based on two opposing dynamics in center-state-municipality relationships. This is a work in progress, so any recommendations are welcome. Thank you all in advance.
