Conference on self-governance

The patronage of the President  
of the Republic of Poland
Bronisław Komorowski

 
The conference is organised under the honorary patronage  
of the President of the European Committee of the Regions
 
 
Europe level up = governance level down
 
Decentralisation and multilevel governance
as key factors for a stronger Europe

 
 
4th June 2015
European Committee of the Regions, room JDE 52

 

25 years ago in Poland  the self-government level was restored as a  result of political
changes. This reform, subsequently continued by the government of Prof. Jerzy Buzek,  
has been considered to be one of the most successful transformations in the recent history
in Poland.  
 
30 years ago in Strasburg  the European Charter of Local self-government was adopted.
This document of crucial importance promotes political, administrative and financial
independence of local authorities.

By commemorating these two important events we want to open a discussion on condition
of the European Union’s self-government level.  Although benefits that  decentralisation
brings are not questioned, the process itself is not finished yet. There is a need to continue
financial decentralisation and reinforce regional and local level, also by introducing  
a multilevel governance principle, to make them a real partner contributing to European
growth and jobs.
