The mechanism of commissioned tasks in the law of local self-government of Poland and Japan: Comparative considerations

The Japanese local self-government system is a very characteristic model, standing out from the background of legal solutions adopted in this respect by other countries of the world. In addition to the distinction between Japanese local autonomy, collective autonomy and civic autonomy traditionally exposed in the doctrine, the distinctive feature of those legal solutions is the mechanism of commissioned tasks functioning since the 1999 reform, transferred to local self-government by central authorities (including the method of financing their implementation). Japanese experience, although seemingly distant, can be a reference point for the analysis of the functional dimension of the Polish local self-government system on the thirtieth anniversary of its reactivation.
