Languages of publication
In Poland, the institution of participative budget was firstly introduced in 2011 in Sopot. Since then, the number of local governments, mainly at the lowest level, which have introduced this form of direct democracy is systematically growing. The statutory regulation of this budgeting process was introduced at the beginning of 2018, establishing social consultations in which residents of a community vote on the submitted projects. In this study, the author presents the statutory regulation and evaluates it primarily in the light of the existing solutions introduced by the largest cities (Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan, Wroclaw, Lodz), and presents de lege ferenda remarks.
