    The European Local Democracy Week (ELDW) is an initiative co-ordinated by the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe. This paneuropean event takes place every year during the week of the 15 October.

    The 2013 edition will takes place between 14 and 20 October. However, should this coincide with other events or local elections, local authorities may choose to organise the ELDW on more convenient dates in October where possible.
