Accountability and transparency

The primary aim of the Political Party Transparency Index, conducted in August 2023, is to foster transparency and accountability within political parties. Recognizing the pivotal role of robust, transparent, and responsible political parties in a healthy democracy, the assessment strives to promote intra-party democracy, enhance financial transparency, and facilitate public information. 

Legislation is important business for parliaments. Parliaments around the world implement a staggering number of new laws every week but few parliaments know what happens after these laws are implemented. Post-legislative scrutiny (PLS) is a systematic and structured process that helps parliaments review the implementation and impact of legislation.
