Summary

Some of the most far-reaching and innovative parliamentary reform is occurring in Africa. While these reforms are not yet widespread across the continent, parliaments in some African countries are asserting their independence as policymakers, as overseers of government and as the guardian of citizens’ rights and needs.

African Parliamentary Reform presents recent reforms in selected African parliaments – Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Benin and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It also presents cross-cutting innovations by African parliaments – in fighting corruption, in providing development to constituents and in combatting climate change. Many of the chapters are authored by African MPs.

The book will be of interest to students and scholars of African Politics, and to those international institutions that support parliamentary development.

African Parliamentary Reform is a joint initiative by the World Bank Institute, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and the Parliamentary Centre (Africa).
