Local Government Development in Croatia. Problems and Value Mix

Chapter
Part of the Urban Research International book series (URI, volume 2)

Abstract

In most European countries local self-government is considered to be a counter-balance to the central government and a form of division of power based on territorial principle. It is also considered to be a suitable milieu for providing a wide scope of public services necessary to the citizens. In many Western European countries local self-government was established as a part of democratic political tradition that can, in some cases, be traced back to a relatively distant feudal past. Expected improvement of democratic values joined with an expected increase of total institutional capacity for solving public problems has recently led to an intensified process of decentralisation in both Western European and transitional countries.
