UNICEF Nepal Working Paper Series : Parliamentary Oversight In Nepal : The Science Of Legislation ( The Right Of Children- A Case In Point )
PDF File Size: 546 KB | Download   
This paper is divided into five sections. It examines parliamentary oversight as one of the key democratic functions. Parliamentary oversight and judicial review are two key counter-hegemonic tools in the hands of public institutions that make the state/government responsible and accountable to the rule of law. For any democratic state, bringing and managing power within the framework of the rule of law has consistently been a daunting challenge and the mission. This paper examines factors that have posed limitations on the successful accomplishment of parliamentary oversight and also discusses on the solutions. Sections 1 and 2 describe the problematic aspects; whereas, sections 3 and 4 offer solutions. Section 5 concludes the paper with summarizing its main arguments.
