ALDA’s secretary general Antonella Valmorbida authors a review of the role of municipal councils



ALDA’s secretary general Antonella Valmorbida has just authored a research piece focusing on a review of the role of municipal council as a part of as part of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) project ‘Empowering Municipal Councils’, implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

The project is aimed at enhancing the performance and role of municipal councils within local self-government units in Macedonia through a wide range of support measures. The main objective of the project is to empower municipal councils to become more effective and autonomous bodies, better able to withstand the influence of the executive power, by properly fulfilling their constitutionally assigned roles of legislation, oversight and representation.

The comparative review contributes to this aim by presenting the legislative and institutional frameworks for municipal councils in different countries, identifying good practices, and supporting measures to reform the existing system in Macedonia. The review will serve as a draft to initiate discussions at networking events to be organised on various topics related to local self-government within the framework of the project.

The full document is accessible through the official website of the project, here.
