A new stage in developing the local self-government – is the moment of truth to come?
The authors believe that one of the reasons for a slow and painful recovery of the local self-government lies in the preservation of a system of territorial division that was aimed just at liquidation of public authority. The efforts to establish local self-government today run across the problem of internal organization. That is why the question of administrative limits of local self-government, on the one hand, and administrative limits of state administration, on the other, will remain in the agenda and provoke fierce debates until an administrative and territorial reform is worked out and implemented.
On the role of local self-government in Russia and on the destinies of people who devoted themselves to the municipal cause.
The traditional column of the “Politeia” provides biographic data on Anatoly Yakshin and Tatyana Govorenkova who devoted their lives to reestablishment of Russian municipal science. The ‘archive’ also includes extracts from Govorenkova’s lectures before the Club of municipal public figures.
