Local Governments

Program Introduction

The local administrations are obliged to ensure that the local community members who live on a certain geographical area fulfill their own responsibilities with the general authority of economic, social, cultural richness and refurbishment local services in order to meet their own needs and have the authority of openness, transparency and participatory democracy principles. are autonomous, democratic organizations with public legal personality, which are used in the nearest management unit to the local people.

Today, almost everywhere in the world, there is a multi-faceted transformation. This transformation process brought about the inadequacy of the traditional management methods, especially in the field of management, while introducing the concept of multi-actor governance, including elements such as businesses, pressure groups, non-governmental organizations, while taking advantage of private sector management procedures. The concept of governance inevitably influenced local and national governments as well as national and international platforms. In this framework, local governments have tried to renew themselves and 'local governance' has begun to gain weight in order to provide a wide participation in the decision process. Today, it seems that there is a general agreement between central and local governments compared to the past, and even the dominance of the center from the past in sharing authority and responsibility is decreasing and the local administrations are more prominent. For this reason, local governments are accelerating cooperation projects in the formation of local politics, local development, center and private sector as well as other actors (development agencies, NGOs etc). In addition, major changes in the legislation of the Municipality, Municipality and Special Provincial Administration of the Greater City in the process of harmonization with the European Union constitute a very important stage of strengthening and extending the duties and powers of such local government units.

This importance of local governments inevitably increased the importance of qualified human resources needed by local administrations. The problem of not being able to employ qualified and trained specialists in local governments has been trying to solve rapidly in our country. As a matter of fact, it will be possible to meet the needs of this area especially by the departments of Public Administration and especially Local Administrations.

The Local Governments that will begin training in the 2012-2013 academic year will present an understanding of education that teaches how to take local priorities into consideration while globalizing, especially as those who prefer to be future-oriented, have management skills and know the realities of the country.
