Prepared under the authority of the Steering Committee on Local and Regional Democracy (CDLR), it examines local and regional aspects of self-government. For Poland the principles of local democracy are enshrined in the Constitution, which guarantees a decentralised government, the effective status of regional municipalities, and the rights of local councils, and citizens to elect them without hindrance.

Poland though is still a unitary state, and further developments will be needed to allow local democracy to flourish.
