Description - The New Roles of Parliamentary Committees by Roger H. Davidson
Parliaments widely had been expected to decline in significance in the later part of the twentieth century, but instead they have developed new and vital political roles and have innovated in their institutional structure - most recurrently in newly organised or invigorated parliamentary committees, not only in a few parliaments, but as a global phenomenon. Even as newly democratic parliaments throughout the world experiment with more elaborate committee structures, those with older, highly developed committee systems are reaching for more varied and flexible alternatives. In short, parliamentary committees have emerged as vibrant and central institutions of democratic parliaments of today's world and have begun to define new and changing roles for themselves. This publication is devoted to the study and evaluation of these important and still emergent parliamentary developments - to an understanding of the new roles of parliamentary committees in the quest for effective parliamentary influence in and contribution to democratic government.
