Омбудсмены в сфере местного самоуправления: опыт правового регулирования и деятельности в англосаксонских государствах
This article examines the experience of legal regulation and the activities of ombudsman offices in the field of local government in the AngloSaxon states. The author notes that institutionally this mechanism depends on the form of state structure, functioning either at the national or regional level, although recently the offices of the municipal ombudsman, have also been appearing. The request for the development of the ombudsman’s control over municipal institutions is determined, inter alia, by the peculiarities of the corporate model of local government, which increases the opacity of the activities of municipal bodies. The author singles out a number of specific features of the Anglo-Saxon experience in the area under consideration, concerning primarily the functional component of the ombudsman’s status, which are of interest for further study and possible reception.
