On the Sources and Studies of Ottoman Municipalities

Ottoman institutions of local government (municipalities-councils) displayed a successful development in the XIX. century modernization trend, particularly in the harbor cities because of the international trade. The archive documents are the primary sources for the studies on the Ottoman municipalities-councils. Şura-yı Devlet, İrade and Dahiliye Nezareti catalogs of the Primeministerial Ottoman Archives in Istanbul, contain rich information on the Ottoman local government system. Additionally, some other published Turkish works (which are in Arabic alphabet) on the above mentioned period contains reliable and important sources. The studies on the Ottoman Empire local government system can be examined under several headlines, such as studies on the 19th century modernization trend's effects on local authorities studies on corporate internal organization of local government authorities; legal base of the local government system; and studies on local government services.
