Project Report from the year 2007 in the subject Law - Public Law / Constitutional Law / Basic Rights, , course: EU-Project "Support to the implementation of the law on general principles of organisation of local self-government in the Russian Federation", language: English, abstract: The German system of local government is composed of several territorial public corporations. Basis of local government is the right to communal self-government, which is entrenched in the Constitution of the Federation (Bund) in Article 28 (2) 1 GG , as well as in the constitutions of the federal states (Länder), e.g. in Article 11 of the Constitution of Bavaria . Organisation and structure of the basic level of local government is regulated by the federal states in Municipal Regulations (Gemeindeordnungen) with the exclusion of the three pure city states of Berlin, Hamburg and Bremen. No single Code of communal law exists in the federal states, but a variety of laws covers the different levels of local government. Besides the already mentioned Municipal Regulations, there are District Regulations (Landkreisordnung) , depending on the size of the States also on a higher tier Regional Regulations (Bezirksordnung) ; in addition laws about local elections on the different levels (Kommunalwahlgesetz) and the different forms of inter-corporation co-operation (Gesetz über die kommunale Gemeinschaftsarbeit , Zweckvebandsgesetz , Gemeindekassenverordnung (e.g. in Lower Saxony), Gesetz über die kommunale Zusammenarbeit and Verwaltungsgemeinschaftsordnung , Kommunalabgabengesetz (e.g. in Bavaria).
