The European Charter of Local Self-Government

C. M. G. Himsworth

Edinburgh University Press

The monitoring procedures (including, in particular, the resulting reports and recommendations) discussed in chapter 4 have produced a rich ‘jurisprudence’ which, along with that produced by judicial interpretation, is discussed in chapter 5. A particular focus is on what is identified as a tendency for the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities to ‘overreach’ by extending their monitoring beyond the scope of the European Charter of Local Self-Government, as more strictly defined.

Keywords:   Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, European Charter of Local Self-Government, monitoring, judicial interpretation, overreach
