New study: CEMR reveals all the latest numbers on Europe’s towns and regions
From Sweden to Cyprus and from Portugal to Georgia, CEMR’s news study gives you all the information you need on the structures and competences of towns and regions in over 40 countries in Europe.

Available in English and French, “Local and Regional Governments in Europe: Structures and Competences” is the outcome of a study that was conducted with CEMR’s member associations.

What you will find in the study:
 
  •  An infographic map on local and regional Europe
  •  42 country fact files with the most important data on towns and regions in each European country: key figures, competences, structure…

Did you know?
 
  • These past few years, the number of local entities in Europe has remained almost unchanged (-1,6%), except if you count Turkey (-15%)
  • Nowadays, Europe is made up of 129,472 towns and cities, 1,401 provinces and counties, and 401 regions
  • The number of regions in Europe has increased by approximately 10% since 2012
  •  In most cases, mayors are elected for a four-year term

With this publication, we want to highlight the territorial diversity of European countries and strengthen mutual knowledge on how all towns, cities and regions work.

We hope it will contribute to creating a real partnership between all spheres of governance: local, national, European and global.
