Congress assesses the application of the European Charter of Local Self-Government in member states
A Congress delegation, composed of rapporteurs Marjorie Crovetto (Monaco, NR) and Christine Chevalley (Switzerland, ILDG), held remote meetings with the local and national authorities of Luxembourg on 6 and 7 October 2021 to assess the implementation of the European Charter of Local Self-Government in Luxembourg since the previous monitoring report adopted by the Congress in 2015.
The rapporteurs had an exchange of views on the latest developments in the field of local governance in Luxembourg with Taina Bofferding, Minister of the Interior; Fernand Etgen, President of the Chamber of Deputies; Dan Biancalana, President of the Committee on Home Affairs and Gender Equality; Roger Linden, President of the Constitutional Court; and Claudia Monti, Ombudsman of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Remote meetings were also held with the mayors of Luxembourg city and the municipalities of Wiltz and Consdorf. The Congress delegation further met with members of the Luxembourg national delegation to the Congress and representatives of the Union of Luxembourg Cities and Municipalities (SYVICOL).
Armenia ratified the European Charter of Local Self-Government in 2002. Countries that have ratified the Charter are bound by its provisions. The Charter requires the implementation of a minimum set of rights which form the essential basis of local self-government in Europe. The Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe ensures that these principles are respected in the 47 Council of Europe member states.
