Autonomy of Vietnamese Villages through Village Regulations


Tóm tắt

In the early days since the formation of Vietnamese communes, or villages, when the intervention of the feudal state was still limited, self-management and autonomy were highly positioned in the administrative units. Then, with the development of the units and the increasingly stronger intervention of the feudal state, birth was given to village customs, first unwritten, then in the written form, and, afterwards, the village regulations.
