The European Charter of Local Self-Government

C. M. G. Himsworth

Edinburgh University Press

This final chapter traces the European Charter of Local Self-Government’s trajectory over its thirty years. It was born in times of post-War European enthusiasm for co-operation between states; benefited greatly from its relevance to the post-1989 transformation of Central and Eastern Europe and to the process of admission to European Union membership; but now faces a more uncertain future (along with the Council of Europe) in the newer configuration of Europe and increasing stresses and strains between states.

Keywords:   European Charter of Local Self-Government, Central and Eastern Europe, European Union, Council of Europe
