ion of local institutions throughout Europe. One of the crucial issues regulated by the Charter is local affairs. The Charter is based on German tradition. French and English tradition in determining local scope of affairs are also analysed in this study. Subsidiarity principle is correlated with widening local scope of affairs. It demands that each public affair is designated to the lowest level in territorial administrative system able to perform it in an appropriate manner. Local self-government scope of affairs may be regulated by two opposite legal technics – by general clause and by enumeration of local affairs. Local self-government units may also execute state administrative affairs which are delegated to them (delegated affairs). Self-government scope and delegated affairs are substantially different in legal terms. Furthermore, there is a difference between minimal, compulsory self-government scope of affairs, and the optional one. The enumeration of
common, typical local activities is presented. The cooperation of local units is stressed as one of the methods for overcoming weak local potentials for performing local activities. Croatian legal regulation of local self-government scope before and after the year 2000 differs. Subsidiarity principle was accepted and local scope was substantially widened by constitutional and legal changes in the years 2000 and 2001. Several propositions for the continuation of the decentralisation process are presented in the study. They refer to: subsidiarity and solidarity principles, the difference between compulsory and optional self-government scope of affairs, autonomy in performing local responsibilities, list of typical local and regional activities, delegated scope of affairs, the role of the territorial self-government below local level, cooperation of local units, and state assistance to local units. Activities that could be taken over by different cathegories of local units in Croatia in the short term and in the following ten-year period are also
listed in the paper.
