CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In most countries, parliament has the constitutional mandate to both oversee
government and to hold government to account; often, audit institutions, ombuds
and anti-corruption agencies report to parliament, as a means of ensuring both
their independence from government and reinforcing parliament's position at the
apex of accountability institutions. At the same time, parliaments can also
play a key role in promoting accountability, through constituency outreach,
public hearings, and parliamentary commissions. This title will be of interest
to parliamentarians and parliamentary staff, development practitioners,
students of development and those interested in curbing corruption and
improving governance in developing and developed countries alike.
