• Abstract

    This article aims to analyze and evaluate the constitutional basis of local self-governance within today's legal framework. The main objective is to assess the importance and function of constitutional principles in influencing the operations of local self-government and its broader implications for democracy and sustainable progress. To achieve the research goals, a combination of research methodologies was used. Legal analysis was employed to scrutinize constitutional regulations concerning local self-government, comparative analysis to explore discrepancies in constitutional provisions among various nations, and statistical data and scholarly sources to gain a thorough understanding of the topic. Systematic and coherent analytical approaches were used to clarify the interaction between constitutional norms and the actual execution of local self-government. The research findings highlight the significance of constitutional principles in shaping the framework of local self-governance and how these norms influence the operations of local authorities as well as the rights and responsibilities of citizens. The study also delves into the similarities and differences in constitutional regulations across various nations that oversee local self-governance, while assessing the real-world implications of these regulations. The constitutional principles governing local self-government are crucial in facilitating citizen engagement, safeguarding the rights and duties of local authorities, and enhancing democratic processes at the grassroots level. This study emphasizes the critical role of constitutional norms in shaping the framework of local self-governance and its broader implications for democracy and sustainable development. These findings offer valuable insights for policymakers, public institutions, and scholars interested in local governance and sustainable development, potentially informing future legislative reforms and policy decisions. Further research avenues may involve a detailed examination of specific constitutional provisions across various nations and an investigation into their influence on local political dynamics and civil society participation.
