Private and Municipal Care Institutions

  • Maili Mustonen


Municipal administration in Finland is based on a new municipal law that went into effect on 1 July 1995, defining the duties of municipalities in managing their own autonomous functions as well as specific tasks designated by law. New duties or responsibilities may not be given to or taken away from municipalities unless specifically enacted by law. The basic principle is that citizens shall receive basic services through self-government.
