Improving democratic accountability globally: A handbook for legislators on congressional oversight in presidential systems

This handbook summarizes the findings and implications of recent research on legislative oversight in countries with presidential forms of government. It also updates and revises good practice in parliamentary systems. The full research findings and their implications can be found in Riccardo Pelizzo and Frederick Stapenhurst Government Accountability and Legislative Oversight, which was sponsored by GOPAC and the World Bank Institute and published in 2013 by Routledge.
