Bijzondere buren : Lokaal bestuur en lokale verkiezingen in Nederland en Vlaanderen
Even though they are portrayed as culturally and mentally very different, the Dutch and the Flemish share a border, a part of their history, and their language. Little oversight has been provided regarding the similarities and differences in terms of their democratie and political institutions and their mode of operation. This is especially the case for the local level. With upcoming local elections in both the Netherlands and Flanders/Belgium, this article presents an oversight of similarities and diffe rences regarding local government and local elections in both territories. The main conclusion is that there are differences and similarities in both the loca l institutional setting and government practice. In local government practice however, the differences stand out.
