Experience With The Legal Supervision Of Hungarian Local Governments


  • Zsuzsanna ARVA

    (Dr. PhD, habil., Associate Professor of Law; Vice Dean of Education, University of Debrecen Faculty of Law, HUNGARY.)


2012 brought about major changes in the local government system of Hungary and especially in its relationship with state authorities: the previous, relatively weak system of legal control was replaced by the institution of legal supervision. The differences between supervision and control have been studied extensively in scholarly publications in the field of public administration, thus in this paper I would like to focus only on the fact that besides the option for requesting information within the scope of control, supervision has also granted the Government with more serious authority.
