Tools for parliamentary oversight

By Hironori Yamamoto. Parliamentary oversight is a multi-faceted activity. Tools for parliamentary oversight examines the mechanisms and processes used in oversight activities. It identifies and analyzes the tools that are commonly found in plenary and in committee work, where detailed scrutiny of governmental policies can often be carried out most effectively. By developing a catalogue of tools for parliamentary oversight, the study invites parliaments to examine their own practices, and offers a range of examples from national parliaments that may be of wider interest.
