    Legislation constitutes the product of a lengthy process, beginning from a policy concept and ending with the realisation of the desired regulatory results

    The legislative drafting process is part of the legislative (law-making) process, which in turn is part of the policy (governance) process.

    This course analyses procedures and practices of law-making in contemporary democracies.

    • The first part places law-making among other parliamentary functions, underlining the close interrelationship and intertwining between the main features of the law-making process and the form of government.
    • The second part is devoted to parliamentary procedures for law-making and is divided into two sections: (a1) a historical approach, exploring the main models adopted in the UK, France and US (respectively, the tThree rReadings in the UK; the “‘Bureaux System”’ in France; and the Permanent Specialized Committees in the US), and (b2) a section focusing on a key driver of the transformation of law-making procedures: the growing complexity of legislation (‘complexification’), a key factor that is transforming contemporary law-making procedures.
    • The third and final part explores specific law-making practices through a comparative study of different jurisdictions.

    This course was written by Professor Nicola Lupo, Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali.

    Information and communication technologies (ICT) tools are not only transforming the way interpersonal communications are taking place, but also information sharing and functioning of the work place, and ways of political mobilization around the world. For parliaments, ICT are a core enabler of greater openness, accessibility and accountability, as well as a two-way channel for engaging with citizens.

    Extractive industries can be a powerful driver of economic growth, but the extraction of non-renewable resources from the earth is linked to considerable political and economic risks. This course combines thematic expertise with global best-practices to provide parliamentarians and other oversight actors including SAI and civil society with a toolset for the transparent, independent and accountable management of extractive projects.

    This course looks at how parliaments in cooperation with Supreme Audit Institutions (SAIs) and civil society organisations (CSOs) can strengthen their capacities to deliver more inclusive, accountable and open budgets for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    The course explains the ways in which parliamentarians and citizens can participate in the budget process. It demonstrates how the executive can create opportunities for the parliament and citizens to become genuinely engaged in budget planning and implementation. The course outlines the tools parliamentarians and citizens can use to participate in the budget process and how the executive can invite their input at multiple points from allocation to implementation and evaluation.
