administration in the Halychyna as part of the Second Polish Republic

Legislative conditions for reforming the gmina organization in the Halychyna in 20-30s of the XX century

The development of restored in 1918 Poland required new conceptual views and actions in the political and legal sphere. Consequently, interwar Poland (1918–1939) needed the unification of territorial administrative units and related authorities to one stable component. First of all, this unification was important for the gmina organization, which, in Poland before the 1930s, stood out with heterogeneity. The reform, performed in 1933, introduced the one single “collective” gmina (gmina zborowa) for all regions of the Second Polish Republic. This type of gmina didn’t exist in the Halychyna.
