Evgeny I. Belousov, Roman V. Gornev, Tatiana N. Mikheeva


The article is devoted to the investigation of problems of interaction between civil society institutions and local authorities when exercising public control at the municipal level. The authors point out that the subject of nature of civil society and of local government has been recently approached on repeated occasions in science. Scientists agree with the investigators, who speak about independence of local government as the level of public authority and about independence of civil society as the system of elements that don’t depend on state. This statement lets us consider peculiarities of interaction between above-noted institutions in the point of exercising public control. This is the aim of this work. The analysis that has been carried out gave the authors the opportunity to point out the poor study of problems, concerning the public control regulation, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, the opportunity to find out gaps in the legislation in power. It is pointed out that, nowadays, such basic civil society institutions as public associations and mass media are not among the subjects of public control. The regulation of certain forms of public control is controversial enough. Under the investigation scientists offered a number of amendments to the current federal legislation. Authors’ conclusions can be used in the scientific study for the investigation of the problems of interaction between local authorities and civil society institutions.
