Event description

Description

Parliament has a responsibility to monitor the extent to which the laws it passed are implemented as intended. Post-Legislative Scrutiny is an important tool for increasing government accountability and is an essential part of the oversight role of parliament.

Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) and the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS) of the University of London invite you to attend an academic seminar on Post-Legislative Scrutiny, which will result in the publication of a special issue of the European Journal on Law Reform on Post-Legislative Scrutiny, published by IALS.

The academic seminar will:

  1. Discuss Post-Legislative Scrutiny (in terms of the legal enactment and policy impact aspects of law implementation) as a substantial dimension of the oversight role of parliament, within different political systems
  2. Analyse which structures, procedures, emerging methodologies and resources are shaping parliaments’ ability to conduct Post-Legislative Scrutiny, including parliaments’ interaction with executive and implementing agencies
  3. Analyse lessons learned from established ex-ante legislative processes (incorporating review/sunset clauses in bills, Regulatory Impact Assessments, gender analysis) for the ex-post review process of impact of legislation.

Background information about the seminar:

Travel and Accommodation
