Resumé

It is a widespread assumption in Denmark, that the rights to local self-government, which are guaranteed by the Constitution of 1953, not only meet, but also goes beyond what is required by the European Charter of Local Self-Government. Although this is not entirely without reason, the assumption is incorrect. Based on a brief introduction to Danish local government and the Danish ratification of the Charter, the article outlines and discusses the criticisms raised by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe in the most recent evaluation of Denmark’s compliance with the Charter
