This publication, inspired by the parliamentary dialogues held during the virtual meeting Strengthening Oversight of Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic in August 2020, explores the main challenges faced by parliaments in the hemisphere as they exercise this function and presents a selection of good institutional practices for strengthening oversight in the midst of the pandemic, which have been implemented in some parliaments in the region. Additionally, a series of guiding questions has been included to support parliaments in their oversight initiatives, to strengthen monitoring of the government's actions and guide interpellations and questions to government officials.

Finally, specific recommendations are outlined to strengthen the institutional and technical capacities of parliament and of parliamentarians in exercising oversight that takes into account the difficulties and restrictions imposed by the pandemic.
